Crows Nest

Crows Nest is a suburb on the lower North Shore of Sydney located 5 kilometres north of the central business district, in the local government area of North Sydney. Crows Nest was ranked Sydney’s most liveable suburb by the 2015 Urban Living Index.

'Crow's Nest' was named by Edward Wollstonecraft who was granted land in the area in 1821 due to its elevated and commanding position of the surrounding suburbs.

Noted for historic houses and a vibrant restaurant scene, Crows Nest offers tree-lined streets, terrace and semi detached style houses as well as apartment blocks, ranging from modern architecture to mid-century and Art Deco. It has a strong commercial heart, a diverse range of shops, a rising foodie scene and well-planned streets. The jewel in the crown is its central location, easily accessing harbourside parks, buses, train lines, the northern beaches and the city.

Nearby schools include the selective North Sydney Girls School and North Sydney Boys School and the newly established Cameraygal High School all offer excellent academic options.
