Only 24 km north of the city of Sydney, Hornsby is an ideal starting point to explore the attributes of Sydney at its natural best.
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.
An active residential and commercial centre, Hornsby is characterised by its lush bushland setting. The suburb is adjacent to the Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park and borders the Berowra Valley Regional Park.
The magnificent Hawkesbury River and its tributaries are less than 20 minutes north, with trouble-free access to the famous northern beaches and the Central Coast chain of surf and resort villages.
Hornsby is a major regional retail centre and hosts one of the largest Westfield shopping complexes in the Sydney metropolitan area.
Scenic bush drives through the Galston Gorge also connect Hornsby to the picturesque and semi-rural Hills District with its network of riding schools, nurseries and art and craft galleries.
