Artarmon is a suburb in the Australian state of New South Wales, located on Sydney’s lower North Shore. It lies 9 kilometres north-west of Sydney’s central business district and is under the jurisdiction of the City of Willoughby for local government reasons.
In an effort to improve agriculture, land grants were handed to emancipists and soldiers in 1794 and 1796. William Gore (1765-1845), the provost-marshal under Governor William Bligh of New South Wales, had the most valuable land in the region. Gore received a property grant of 150 acres (0.61 km2) in 1810, which he named Artarmon after the estate that his family possessed in Ireland. In his honour, Gore Hill was named for him.
Thomas Rowe, an architect who would eventually become Mayor of Manly, designed the Chatswood South Uniting Church, which was built in 1871. The church is located at the crossroads of Mowbray Road and the Pacific Highway. It is a sandstone church built in the Gothic style, with a modest belfry on the eastern façade of the structure. A small cemetery may be located close to the west of the spot, with the first graves dating back to 1871. The structure was expanded in 1883 and again in 1930, and it is now included on the Register of the National Estate, but it is no longer in use. The National Trust, which administers the cemetery’s listing, has given the cemetery the name Pioneer’s Memorial Reserve.
The Artarmon Post Office officially opened its doors on December 1, 1909.
Artarmon’s residential, commercial, and industrial zones are all intermingled together. High-rise constructions occupy the region to the west of the railway line, while homes occupy the area to the east. Despite having the feel of a residential neighbourhood, the region south of the Gore Hill Freeway is classed as an industrial district. A long stretch of retailers can be found on the western side of the train station along Hampden Road, while a number of cafes can be found on the eastern side of the station along Wilkes Avenue. The Artarmon Public Library is one of the Willoughby Public Library System’s branch libraries.
The Artarmon railway station is one of the stops on the North Shore & Western Line of Sydney Trains. The Gore Hill Freeway and the Pacific Highway intersect in Artarmon. Willoughby Council’s efforts have resulted in a free shuttle service for St. Leonards and the Artarmon Industrial Area. You may take a bus into Sydney’s Central Business District from the Pacific Highway.
