Visit St Leonards
St Leonards is located at the leafy lower end of Sydney's desirable North Shore, an easy 15 minute car or train journey from the central business district, within easy reach of the fabulous Northern Beaches and other attractions.
One of the North Shore's important business districts, St Leonards is an excellent base for corporate travellers. The area contains one of Sydney's suburban skyscraper clusters, with major offices for large companies including IBM, Lenovo, 3 Mobile Australia and Macquarie Media Group.
Shoppers can browse at the new Forum development and around or head to the historic Greenwood Plaza for an extensive range of retailers and cafes. If you are keen to make a big day of it, hit the big shopping malls in neighbouring Chatswood for a serious retail fix.
When it comes to eating out, St Leonards has all bases covered. The relatively small suburb offers more than 100 restaurants, takeaway outlets, trendy bars and cafes offering mouthwatering cuisines from across Asia, Europe, Africa, South America and Australia.
St Leonards also boasts a wide variety of recreational activities. Go indoor rock-climbing at the Climb Fit Centre, Sydney's largest indoor climbing and gymnasium facility, or relax in lovely Newlands Park. Visit St Leonards Park for hiking, jogging or picnicking, play a game of cricket or football at the adjacent North Sydney Oval, or return after dark for the outdoor Starlight Cinema in January and February.
Nearby Lane Cove features superb golf courses and tennis courts, while Lane Cove River is an ideal spot for swimming, fishing and boating. Take a bush walk through Lane Cove Bushland Reserve and experience the area's natural beauty.
Spend a day or two at the amazing Northern Beaches, catching the surf at Curl Curl or Dee Why Beaches or admiring the breathtaking views from Long Reef Point. Sail or jet-ski through Lavender Bay, walk among all creatures great and small at Sydney's famous Taronga Park Zoo, or enjoy the fantastic rides, games and entertainment of Luna Park with Sydney Harbour and the Opera House in the background.
And if that's not enough, simply hop on a train into the city to visit Darling Harbour, the Rocks, Circular Quay and everything else Sydney has to offer.
