While a popular residential address, North Ryde is probably best known for its substantial shopping complex, the Macquarie Centre, which is home to a wide array of specialty shops, department stores, supermarkets, a cinema and even an ice rink. North Ryde is also home to Macquarie University, which is on track to becoming one of Australia's leading research universities.
Located 13.5km north-west of the Sydney CBD, North Ryde’s accessibility has been significantly enhanced by the opening of the Epping to Chatswood railway line. There are plenty of recreational attractions in the area, including the North Ryde Golf Club.
North Ryde is one of Sydney’s older areas, named back in the 1870s, and interestingly, many of its streets were named after famous battles. Significant development occurred in the 1950s and many of these post-war houses have now been renovated or have made way for more contemporary residences. A number of technology parks have sprung up over the years, primarily in the neighbouring area now known as Macquarie Park.
