Description

Waverton is a suburb on the lower North Shore of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Waverton is 4 kilometres north of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of North Sydney Council. # History Waverton was named in 1929 after the Waverton Estate of an early resident, Robert Old. The land once belonged to William Carr, who named it after an English village connected to his family.The North Shore railway line was extended south from St Leonards to Milsons Point in 1893. The station in this area for nearly forty years was known as Bay Road, after the thoroughfare that crosses the railway line. The local progress association recommended a change and Waverton was chosen in 1929.Indigenous Australians occupied the area until 1916. They left behind numerous signs of their presence. Sites include a large rock carving of a whale adjacent to the heritage-listed Coal Loader, waterholes and grinding grooves at Balls Head Reserve, plus engravings and grinding grooves in Waverton Park. Waverton is also home to the museum ship MV Cape Don which is berthed at the old coal loader in Balls Head Bay. # Weather # Things to do
