Located 17km north-west of the Sydney CBD, Eastwood was founded in 1835 by early Irish free settler William Rutledge. A vibrant multi-cultural suburb, it has grown to become a hub for shopping, dining, entertainment and community festivities. The area around Eastwood railway station is the centre of village life, with a wide variety of retail and recreational attractions.
Its quiet residential streets are lined with some grand Federation and Californian bungalows set on expansive parcels of land, along with plenty of newer homes and apartment developments, located primarily around the main village.
A prominent local Eastwood landmark is Ryde Hospital, which was established in 1934 and provides both inpatient and community services. Eastwood is also recognised as the place where the Granny Smith apple was first grown.
