One of the oldest suburbs on the north shore, distinguished by small Federation-style detached cottages in timber or brick. However, the last 30 years have seen an increase in medium density housing developments, and it is now bisected by the Warringah Freeway, completed in 1978 and the Gore Hill Freeway, completed in 1992.
Naremburnby Clare Evans, 2008
Cammeraygal land until the Europeans came, Naremburn still contains shell middens in Flat Rock Creek reserve, but the Aboriginal people were no longer living a traditional life by the 1830s. The town was built in stages from 1853, and grew after the trams reached it in 1896.
