Longueville is a suburb situated on the Lower North Shore of Sydney, in the Australian state of New South Wales, eight kilometres north-west of Sydney’s central business district and inside the Municipality of Lane Cove.
Longueville is a small residential village situated on the peninsula between Tambourine Bay and Woodford Bay, on the banks of the Lane Cove River. The suburb began as a residential area in the 1870s, but it was formerly home to manufacturing industries. In the 1920s, Longueville was classified as an official suburb.
Longueville was inhabited by Cam-mer-ray-gal members of the Kuring-gai Aboriginal Tribe prior to European settlement. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the neighbourhood is the fourth most expensive in Sydney and is home to some of the most expensive real estate in Australia.
Lane Cove River Cruises’ boat services are accessible via Longueville Wharf. Three Sydney Buses routes that serve the Sydney Central Business District, Lane Cove, and Chatswood pass through Longueville.
The Cam-mer-ray-gal Group of the Ku-ring-gai Aboriginal Tribe were the original inhabitants of Longueville. The population on the north shore of Port Jackson was among the highest in the Sydney metropolitan area.
In 1831, Rupert Kirk’s soap and factory founded one of the first manufacturing industries in what is now Longueville. Longueville was created in the 1870s and initially comprised the Lane Cove region, which was then a part of Willoughby. Joseph Palmer and Henry Lamb owned the only two houses in the area in 1884. Richard Hayes Harnett, a land speculator, later acquired a piece of the property and split it into residential units. He was the first mayor of Mosman.
In the 1920s, Longueville was classified as an official suburb.
The origin of the name Longueville is disputed, however it is usually thought that the suburb was named after a French nobleman, the Duc de Longueville. Supposedly, his three daughters, Christina, Lucretia, and Arabella, inspired the naming of the key streets. A related theory argues that the name is connected to the Chateau de Chateaudun, which has a Longueville wing and a Dunois wing, Dunois being an important street in Longueville.
