Wahroonga

Upper-north shore residential suburb with an Aboriginal name meaning 'our home'. Orchards and large estates gradually gave way to suburban development on leafy green streets, but it still retains a natural bushland setting in its residential areas.

The early timber-getters of Wahroonga gave way to orchardists and country mansions for commuters after the railway came through. In the twentieth century, infill housing increased the population, though there is still little commercial development.
