The Northern Suburbs of Sydney is the large metropolitan area that encompasses suburbs on the north shore of Sydney Harbour and Parramatta River. Much like Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, this district is home to some of Sydney’s most affluent suburbs, with large parks and distinctive landmarks scattered across the area. The region is filled with immaculate waterways, lots of greenery, an efficient public transport system, hilly roads, large plots of manicured land, and large federation and bungalow-style homes. Northern Sydney has many famous and unique landmarks included in its boundaries, like the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Taronga Zoo, Admiralty House (the residence of the Governor-General of Australia), Kirribilli House (the residence of the Prime Minister of Australia) and Gladesville Bridge. Its pristine beaches, like Balmoral Beach and Palm Beach, attract many visitors throughout the whole year, and Luna Park is a world-famous amusement park and a staple of Sydney’s history. Macquarie Centre is Sydney’s largest suburban shopping centre, home to over 350 stores and the iconic Ice Skating Rink.
