Davidson NSW 2085

Why Davidson?

Davidson is part of Sydney’s Northern Beaches region, located just 15km North of Sydney CBD. Davidson comprises part of the “Forest” area, which also encompasses the suburbs of Belrose, Frenchs Forest, Forestville, Killarney Heights, Terrey Hills and Duffys Forest. Named for Sir Walter Davidson, the area was predominantly a mining quarry, with residential development only commencing in the suburb in the 1970s.

Adjoining the Garigal and Ku-ring-Gai Chase National Parks, many properties in Davidson are framed by bushland; a major drawcard for residents seeking a private and peaceful lifestyle, but also being within 15 minutes of Sydney’s Northern Beaches coastline.

Glenrose Shopping Centre, Glenrose Theatre and Library, Lionel Watts playing fields and dog park, and a myriad of small reserves and parks are also close by, adding to the neighbourhood’s appeal, along with good bus services connecting Davidson with Chatswood, Sydney’s CBD, North Sydney, Northern Beaches and Lower North Shore. 

Austlink Business Park, located in neighbouring Belrose, is a handy addition to the area, featuring a wide range of commercial & industrial businesses, as well as a home centre and Bunnings frequented by the locals.

The NSW Government is committed to delivering the Beaches Link, connecting the Lower North Shore with the Northern Beaches. More information on this project can be found here.



Davidson has a diverse population, with a mix of young expanding families, older families and retirees.

Health, Education and Schooling

Davidson has two primary schools; Kambora Public School, and St Martin De Porres Catholic Primary School, with Davidson High School the public high school, located in Mimosa Street, Frenchs Forest.

The Northern Beaches Hospital sits in the neighbouring suburb of Frenchs Forest, less than a 5 minute drive away. It is a Level 5 facility providing a range of services including emergency.
