North Shore Region Highlights & Essential Things To Do
Discover Your Local North Shore Area
The North Shore conjures up images of picturesque streets with perfectly manicured hedges, immaculately-presented women floating in and out of glamorous boutiques and hordes of school children ambling home down sleepy avenues, their uniforms as crisp as the early morning. Sydney's North Shore relaxes itself across the twists and turns of North and Middle Harbours and is situated just north of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The North Shore is a synonym for 'family-friendly', full of safe, quiet streets, more schools than are necessary, and a communal atmosphere where being charitable is contagious. Drive through the tree-lined streets of Lindfield and Killara, and gawp at the rose gardens skirting federation estates. Browse the bespoke shops dotted throughout suburbs like Mosman and Neutral Bay, drop into Taronga Zoo or head that little bit further to Manly Beach. Chatswood's three adjacent shopping centres comprise an independent shopping state, along with a mini business district and arguably the best yum cha in Sydney. Nearby Crow's Nest also gravitates around a buzzing strip of cafes, chic bars and al fresco restaurants unsurpassed on a summer night. The surreal beauty of harbour side villages Kirribilli, Lavender Bay and McMahons Point could not do a better job at celebrating Sydney's beauty from this angle. Decide whether you like the view of the bridge better from Blue's Point or Wendy's Secret Garden. It's a tough one.
In true fashion, driving away from the North Shore flaunts one of the best views in Sydney. High rise penthouses in the foreground, the cityscape in the background, and the white sails skipping across the dark blue harbour frame a beautiful corner of the world, where it's okay to act a little bit more glamorous than usual.
