A Guide to Hornsby

Hornsby is a suburb of Sydney and is just about 25 km from the central business district. Lying between the Northern Suburbs and the Upper North Shore, this busy residential suburb is a good base for exploring the charms of Sydney city and the legendary beaches. Transport links are good, so getting around is a simple matter.

Point of Interest

The way that Hornsby got its name is quite interesting in that it was a convict who turned to be a policeman in the early part of the nineteenth century. Samuel Henry Horne was one of the people who captured bushrangers in that era. He was honoured by the townsfolk when he was given land and they named it Hornsby Place. Since that time, there are many places that have Hornsby in the title including the railway station.

Things to Do Here

Shopping - Apart from the shopping in Westfield Hornsby, a very large shopping center with Myer and David Jones stores at the heart of it, there are also food courts, restaurants and a Cineplex. Most people stop to wonder at the water clock sculpture at the centre of the pedestrian mall where there is also a public library for some interesting browsing time.

Swimming - Hornsby has an Aquatic Centre which was opened in 1962. However, the new building will not open until 2014 so anyone expecting to visit before then will be disappointed. The good thing though is that people will be treated to a state of the art facility when it opens.

Bowling - Kids often get a little restless when they are on holiday with parents so letting them run around to let off steam is usually the order of the day. To this end, try the AMF Bowling facility which has a great sound system, bowling balls that glow in the dark and bumper rides for that added touch of excitement. Kids love the arcade games and the whole family can be fed and watered.

Relaxing - Lisgar Gardens is a venue to go to when people just want to wander away from city streets. It is six acres of gardens on a steep hillside but visitors will find rhododendrons, gardenias and azaleas among other exotic plants and indigenous trees. In fact, there are ninety or more species of camellias and some of them are around fifty years old or older. People also use the gazebo as a venue for weddings and the three waterfalls and informal lawn areas are ideal for taking great photos.

Historically speaking - There are some interesting heritage listed estate in Hornsby although, sadly, unlike much smaller cities and towns, Sydney is not known for its guided heritage walks. If you do want to take a trip to see historical buildings put the Water Clock, Odeon Cinema, Council Chambers and the War Memorial on your itinerary.

Bushwalking - There is plenty of bushland around Hornsby served by a network of walking trails for where the local flora and fauna can be enjoyed.

Sightseeing - Since Hornsby is in the suburbs of Sydney, it would be hard to resist a visit to the bright lights of Australia's greatest city.

Here, find beaches, water sports, fishing and all things water and beach related. Also go here to get some boat excursions and a 'must see' view of Sydney Harbour Bridge. The Opera House is also within the same area and everyone has to visit and/or take photos here.

Paddington is a wonderful place to shop in and there are designer stores and small boutiques galore. Or try out William Street which seems to be the place to be for hand crafted products.

January sees all the city centre given over to entertainers like burlesque shows, live music concerts and arts and crafts of all descriptions. Indeed, there are more than one thousand events going on in this period so this is not to be missed. It's a great place to celebrate Australia Day.
