North Sydney Name Origin
North Sydney is named for the area north of the Sydney CBD, which was named by Captain Arthur Phillip after Viscount Sydney, Thomas Townshend, who was British Home Secretary at the time. North Sydney was previously known as St Leonards.
North Sydney Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from 1836 when the town was laid out. Growth was slow, but steady until the 1880s when a development boom occurred. North Sydney became the major commercial centre of the Council area. The most significant development occurred in the post-war years, particularly during the 1950s and 1960s when many high-rise housing developments were built. The population increased from the early 1990s, particularly between 2001 and 2011, a result of new dwellings being added to the area.
