Willoughby Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the 1850s when 600 acres were subdivided, auctioned and named The Township of North Sydney. Growth was slow until the 1880s, with land used mainly for orchards, market gardens, dairy farms and some tanneries. Growth was spurred by the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in 1932, with significant development during the post-war years. The population was relatively stable between 1991 and 2006, and then increased slightly between 2006 and 2011.
Major features of the area include Willoughby Leisure Centre, Bicentennial Reserve, Carlson Park, Hallstrom Reserve, Sanders Park and two schools.
