Why live in GORDON?
Gordon is one of the leafy suburbs of Sydney’s North Shore.
A Family Lifestyle
Gordon has definite family atmosphere – it’s not the place to live if you love the nightlife. But if you’re looking for gentle local entertainment and a healthy lifestyle, the Gordon area offers a couple of options.

If you like a movie, the Roseville Cinemas are just down the Pacific Highway. You won’t see any explosive Hollywood action movies here – the “crying room” for babies and the special discounts club for seniors should let you know that this cinema caters mostly to an older audience.

Gordon is also very conveniently placed for those who love nature - nearby Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park has some of Sydney's best bushwalking trails.
Most of Gordon’s eateries are on the Pacific Highway, near the station. You can find a number of good Asian restaurants here, including Thai Tucka, Noodle City, and Sushi Village.

If you’re looking for something a little bit different, try 'The Claypot'. It’s a Greek restaurant that serves hearty souvlaki meals in, you guessed it, clay pots.
