Wahroonga, 2076

Wahroonga is located approximately 18 kilometres north west of the Sydney CBD in the local government areas of Ku-ring-gai Council and Hornsby Shire. North Wahroonga is an adjacent separate suburb of the same postcode.

Today Wahroonga exists primarily as a garden suburb. Its tree-lined streets retain much of its state-heritage historic houses in styles of residential architecture. 

Hisory

Wahroonga is an Aboriginal word meaning “our home”, likely originating from the Kuringgai language group. Early British colonists utilised the area for its tall trees. Wahroonga was first colonised by the British in 1822 by Thomas Hyndes, a convict who later became a wealthy landowner.

After the North Shore railway line was opened in 1890, it became a popular place for wealthy businessmen to build out-of-town residences with large gardens. Most of the development occurred in the 1920s and 1930S.

Transport
