Solidly middle class, Lane Cove is a lower North Shore suburb which shares its name with one of the recreational gems on the Sydney landscape.
Lane Cove River National Park is one of the most user-friendly of Sydney’s vast network of parks and reserves and, because of its centrality, attracts a constant flow of visitors and picnickers.
It offers a safe, secure environment for boating, backyard-style cricket matches, gentle bushwalks, cycling, camping or just relaxing in family, sporting or community groups.
The river, of course, flows into Sydney Harbour and gives direct access to one of the world’s most beautiful harbour systems.
Lane Cove shopping centre has a distinct village atmosphere. Its pedestrian mall is lined with cafes, trees, benches and a well-used and much-loved bandstand. Serious shoppers are just a few minutes drive from the North Shore's biggest, brightest and brashest retail centre at Chatswood.
This centre has it all - large department stores, fashion boutiques, specialty and gift stores, supermarkets…and when you are shopped out you can recharge on your choice of just about every ethnic style of food imaginable.
