Hornsby Shire is a vibrant and beautiful place to visit and to live.

From the pristine bushland of Ku-ring-gai National Park on the banks of the Hawkesbury River to the endless rolling acres of Rural Dural, from the quaint cottage shops of boutique Beecroft to the razzamatazz of Westfield Hornsby, from the luxury and comfort of city-style accommodation to the peace and serenity of a night under the stars, Hornsby Shire has it all!

Hornsby Shire is famous for the beauty of its parks and gardens, its plant nurseries and local produce, and its rich history of indigenous life and European pioneering spirit. Arcadia's Fagan Park with its Gardens of All Nations is a must see or you might like to meander along the tourist drive to historic Wisemans Ferry at the very northern tip of the Shire. You can boat or float on the Hawkesbury River, whether it is luxury on a houseboat or hiring a tinny for a spot of fishing.

Eateries are many and as varied as the cuisines they purvey and all have that individual 'flavour' distinctive of our Shire. All tastes are catered for, but you have got to try the Local Seafood! Nightlife dazzles with music and top class entertainment at the Hornsby Shire's licensed clubs and pubs.
