About Hornsby

 

Only 24 Km north of the city of Sydney, Hornsby is the northern most gateway to Sydney.

 

Hornsby is an ideal starting point to explore the beauty of Sydney's natural bushland. Hornsby is characterized by it’s lush bushland setting. It is adjacent to the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park and borders the Berowra Valley Regional Park. The magnificent Hawkesbury River and it’s tributaries are less than 20 minutes north.

 

Located on the junction of the north shore and main northern rail links, Hornsby is easily accessed via the Pacific highway to the south and the F3 Freeway from the north.

 

Hornsby is an active residential and commercial centre, with a major regional retail centre and hosts one of the largest Westfield shopping complexes in the Sydney metropolitan area.

 

Hornsby Shire is a vibrant and beautiful place to visit and to live.
