On the main northern train line from Sydney's Central Station, Beecroft is a natural bushland village. Within a few kilometres of such attractions as Koala Park, where you can get nose-to-nose with Australia's cutest marsupial, and Cumberland State Forest - the only metropolitan forest in the southern hemisphere - Beecroft is less than 25 minutes by car from Sydney along the M2 motorway. The main north rail-line which passes through the suburb offers links to the city, Hornsby, Parramatta and neighbouring suburbs.
Beecroft is home to three Primary Schools, Beecroft Primary School - established in 1897.Roselea Public School and St. Gerard Majella Catholic Primary School. Arden Anglican School and Carlingford High School are also located in Beecroft.
The small but compellingly-quaint shopping precinct of Beecroft is only minutes from the major commercial centres of Epping, Castle Hill and the Macquarie shopping complex. Beecroft and neighbouring Cheltenham are rarities in the metropolis that is Sydney. They are just a 20 to 30 minutes drive on the M2 from the heart of Sydney, yet they retain the charm and tranquillity of bushy, elegant country villages.
Beecroft railway station is on the North Shore, Northern & Western Line of the Sydney Trains network.
