About Lane Cove

Lane Cove is uniquely located, surrounded by the Lane Cove River and the Harbour foreshores. It is one of the more leafy suburbs of Sydney and it fosters a unique sense of community.

Before the1800s, Lane Cove was an early source of timber and grasses for feed. Wharves were built along the Lane Cove River, including one by an ex-convict, Joseph Fidden, in the area now known as Fiddens Wharf Reserve.  The western part of Lane Cove remained less developed until after World War Two, except for some industry near the river, such as the cornflour mills established in 1894.
By the end of the late 19th Century, public pressure grew for the government to acquire the foreshore lands for a recreation reserve and to protect the waterways and retain the natural features of the valley. Lane Cove National Park was opened on October 29th, 1938.
