About Ku-ring-gai


Situated just 16 kilometres from the city on Sydney’s leafy North Shore, Ku-ring-gai is known for its natural beauty and urban villages. It’s a picturesque lifestyle with clean waterways, striking wildlife and action-packed events backed by great services and infrastructure.

Ku-ring-gai stretches from near the Roseville cinema in the south to Wahroonga Park in the north and from St Ives Showground in the east to Lane Cove National Park in the west.

It is bound by three national parks - Garigal National Park, Lane Cove National Park and Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. This means our residents and visitors enjoy areas of unspoiled bushland, plus the incredible wildlife that goes along with it.

Our green leafy streets, tranquil parks, and walking and bike trails are renowned but as the region has expanded, there’s much more on offer. Ku-ring-gai's cultural diversity and expanding communities means that the region has multicultural hubs with vibrant dining and entertaining areas, as well as many community events to enjoy.

Ku-ring-gai Council is committed to delivering the highest quality service, valued and trusted by our community.
