Lane Cove

A tranquil and tidy riverside suburb on the other side of Sydney Harbor.

Open benches and cluttered community message boards characterize Lane Cove, a warm and friendly suburb on Sydney's Lower North Shore. Perched upon the hills across the harbor from the CBD, this village-style neighborhood flaunts stunning views of big business alongside the subtle tranquility of its tee boxes and nature preserves. If you're looking to feel more big-city than small-town, getting to Sydney's core or its beachfront surf breaks is simple with a car.
