Hornsby Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the 1830s when the first land grants were made. Growth took place from the 1880s, following the opening of the railway line, with the township growing around the station. The most significant development occurred in the post-war period, with Hornsby becoming the major centre of Hornsby Shire. In recent years much medium and high density housing has been built in and around the commercial area. The population has increased since the early 1990s as new dwellings have been added to the area, particularly units and apartments.
Major features of the area include Westfield Hornsby Shopping Centre, Hornsby Mall, TAFE NSW Northern Sydney Institute (Hornsby College), Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital, Mt Wilga Private Rehabilitation Hospital, Wallarobba Arts and Cultural Centre, Hornsby Aquatic and Leisure Centre, Shire Offices, Berowra Valley Regional Park, Clarinda Wetland, Fishponds Waterhole, Hornsby Rifle Range, Hornsby Mountain Bike Trail, Beatrice Thomson Park, Dural Street Playground, Florence Cotton Park, Ginger Meggs Park, Holman Park, Hornsby Park, James Park, Lessing Street Playground, Mildred Avenue Playground, Reddy Park, Storey Park, Willow Park Playground, Lisgar Gardens, Edgeworth David Community Garden, the Hornsby railway station, Barker College and numerous other schools.
