Berowra Heights is located approximately 36km north of Sydney.
Berowra is an Aboriginal word that means place of many winds. The Berowra area has many Aboriginal carvings and is the site of the world’s oldest living amphibian fossil. The bushland waterway of Berowra Waters is only a few minutes drive away and hosts a variety of first-class restaurants and cruise options in an unrivalled setting. A tributary to Berowra Creek, Crosslands Creek, which is accessible only from the south through Somerville Road, is a haven for mud crabs which scavenge among the leaf-litter at low tide. The Crosslands reserve is generously equipped with barbecue and picnic facilities.
Berowra Heights is home to Wideview Primary School, Berowra Christian Community School, St Bernards Primary School and Berowra Public School.
Business is conducted in two shopping centres; the Village Green and Berowra Marketplace. Other businesses include an IGA Supermarket, Bendigo Bank, Coles supermarket, a medical centre, two pharmacies, and a variety of restaurants.
