Pymble is located 16kms from the Sydney CBD and was named after the early settler Robert Pymble who supplied timber to the Sydney colony. Many well-known architectural examples are located within Pymble including the magnificent Walter Burley Griffin-designed house Coppins, the Ku-ring-gai Town Hall and the Sacred Heart Presbytery.
Pymble provides a number of recreational activities within its borders including the newly renovated Ku-ring-gai Fitness and Aquatic Centre, Bi-centennial Park, and its many nature reserves, in particular Dalrymple-Hay Nature Reserve, which is one of the last remaining areas of Blue Gum High Forest in Sydney. Both the Avondale and Pymble Golf Clubs provide an opportunity for golf enthusiasts to improve their swing on two of Sydney’s best courses.
With an abundance of highly sought after schools, and only a short drive to nearby Lane Cove National Park, the area proves very popular with families of all ages.
