Introducing North Sydney NSW – Everything Businesses Need to Know


Across the Harbour Bridge from the Sydney Opera House, you’ll find an area of the city with characterful office buildings, versatile cafés, gyms and parks, and excellent transport links. In short, North Sydney is a fantastic business location in the wider Sydney CBD area. In 2021, the Australian Bureau of Statistics recorded just under 70,000 residents in this area and by June 2022, approximately 4,200 of the 15,380 employees in North Sydney were engaged in the professional, scientific and technical services industries – almost 30% of the working population here.

Furthermore, Greater Sydney as a whole has brilliant commuter links, extending from North Sydney out across the central business district. Public transport in the city is as reliable as it gets. In fact, since 2011, New South Wales has reported increased public transport usage and a slight decline in private car use. Every day, commuters head to North Sydney to work in the successful finance, tech and science businesses that thrive in this area.
