North Shore (Sydney)

North Shore (Sydney)

The North Shore is a primarily residential upper middle class area of northern metropolitan Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Since it is not clearly defined, there is some variation in its geographical limits. It usually includes the north shore of Sydney Harbour between Middle Harbour and the Lane Cove River, up to the northern border of the Ku-ring-gai local government area; less commonly, suburbs further west to the Ryde Bridge are also included, although this would also include what is known as the Northern Suburbs which is a separate locality.

Famous quotes containing the words north and/or shore:

    A brush had left a crooked stroke
    Of what was either cloud or smoke
    From north to south across the blue;
    A piercing little star was through.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    In the middle of the night, as indeed each time that we lay on the shore of a lake, we heard the voice of the loon, loud and distinct, from far over the lake. It is a very wild sound, quite in keeping with the place and the circumstances of the traveler, and very unlike the voice of a bird. I could lie awake for hours listening to it, it is so thrilling.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
