Located in Sydney’s Northern Suburbs, Normanhurst is a family friendly suburb with access to great schools, native bushland and transport links, with a peaceful and secluded feel that attracts many residents into its leafy valleys.
Normanhurst was formally known as Hornsby, until the construction of the Main Northern and North Shore train lines in the 1890s when the postmaster demanded that the name be changed due to confusion between two closely located and similarly named stops. The suburb was developed around the new station and growth continued throughout the 1900s.
Now divided by Pennant Hills Road, a major arterial road leading from Parramatta north to the M1 Motorway, the western side of the suburb neighbours the southern end of Berowra Valley, contributing to an abundant array of native birdlife also calling Normanhurst home.
The current village hub is also centred around Normanhurst Railway Station and includes a Post Office, the No 38. Café, a pharmacy and pizzeria, all walking distance from Normanhurst Boys High School. Loreto Normanhurst is one of the many highly sought-after private schools in the area, catering to girls from years 7 to 12 and younger students can attend Normanhurst Public School.
