Northbridge – our suburb
Northbridge is a peninsula suburb, surrounded on three sides by the calm waters of Middle Harbour, a major branch of Sydney Harbour. The suburb is seven kilometres from the CBD of Sydney and enjoys a regular bus service to the city. A bicycle path connects the suburb to other parts of Willoughby and North Sydney.

Northbridge is close to the city yet has 47 hectares of natural bushland in Clive Park, which also contains the active Northbridge Sailing Club and Northbridge Boat Shed.

The 46 hectare area known as Northbridge Park is home to Northbridge Oval, a Scout Hall, Guide Hall, an 18-hole Golf Course and clubhouse, a War Memorial, multi-use courts, a bike track, Willoughby Men’s Shed and large areas of natural bushland.

The suburb also has a splendid, 50-metre fenced harbour swimming baths and dressing sheds in Widgiewa Rd. Entry is free.

The Discover Northbridge brochure provides two main routes to allow you and your family to ‘discover Northbridge’ by foot or bicycle, or even by car. There are also summaries of three bush walking routes in the suburb. Please enjoy.
