Suburb Overview

Carlingford is a suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Carlingford is 22 kilometres north-west of the Sydney central business district in the local government areas of the The Hills Shire, Hornsby Shire and the City of Parramatta. Carlingford is on the north-eastern outskirts of the Greater Western Sydney region and is on the south-eastern outskirts of the Hills District and western outskirts of Northern Suburbs.

Originally, the area of Carlingford was called Mobb's Hill, named after the ex-convict settler William Mobb, who is credited for bringing oranges to Australia. Carlingford received its current name in 1886 after a vote by the residents Carlingford may also have been named in honour of Lord Carlingford, who was Under-secretary to the Colonies.

The area was settled in the mid-1800s and, at the time, was an agricultural area on the outskirts of Sydney. Like much of the Hills District, Carlingford was a significant orange-growing area for the city. Pennant Hills Road, then a major arterial road from Parramatta to the northern suburbs, was a major route of transportation for agricultural produce from the area. When the train line which terminated at Carlingford railway station, then known as Simpson's Railway, was completed in 1896, it too, became a major route for the area. Carlingford Produce, a gardening and agricultural-materials seller located next to the train station, is located in the former train workshops. This store, much like James Ruse Agricultural High School remain as testament to the agricultural history of the suburb.

Mobb's Hill Post Office opened on 1 July 1883 and was renamed Carlingford fifteen days later. This office closed in 1995. The Carlingford Shopping Square office opened on 1 December 1982 and was renamed Carlingford Court in 1993 and remains open. A Carlingford North office opened on 1 March 1965. Carlingford school in 1896.

In April 1923 the established the Dalmar Children's Homes on 15 acres of land near Marsden Road in the eastern end of the suburb. The property eventually had many cottages, together with a hospital, an orchard and vegetable gardens. The land is now the site of the Alan Walker Retirement Village.

The suburb was also home to several homes for children operated by the Anglican Diocese of Sydney since the 1920s: The Church of England Boys' Home, Church of England Girls' Home, and the Havilah Children's Home, Tress Manning Temporary Care, and Field Cottage. Land owned by the homes has since been developed for housing, with street names such as Trigg, Marella, Carramar, Buckland and Lisgar reflecting the names of individual houses or Anglican Home Mission Society services. Boys' Home buildings and grounds are now the regional base and Sydney Australia Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Girls' Home property in the south of the suburb has become, since 1974, Anglicare's Kingsdene Special School for severely to profoundly intellectually disabled children, as well as the American International School.

As Sydney rapidly expanded, following World War II, Carlingford underwent rapid urbanisation. James Ruse Agricultural High School, established in 1959, is a testament to the agricultural history of Carlingford as well as the rapid pace of urbanisation;which soon made the school, and its large farm, somewhat of an anomaly amongst the 1970s- and 1980s-style houses which dominate the suburb. More recently, in the 1990s, the government policy of urban consolidation has seen the development of high-density units and apartment blocks around the town centre and the train station. There have also been redevelopments of older houses into medium-density townhouses, and duplex housing.

In 1961, the HMS K13 memorial was unveiled, and stands as a prominent feature in Carlingford, passed by thousands of motorists along Pennant Hills Road each day.

The Carlingford town centre is located on Pennant Hills Road and comprises a shopping strips and two shopping centres, Carlingford Court and Carlingford Village. The shopping strip, near Carlingford railway station, includes Carlingford Bowling Club, the only pub in Carlingford.

Carlingford Court, managed by GPT, is a typical large suburban shopping centre featuring supermarkets, discount department stores, specialty shops and a Fitness First. The centre underwent major reconstruction in the late 1990s and underwent minor redevelopment after the Myer department store closed on March 31, 2006. Carlingford Village is a smaller shopping complex, which has many Asian food outlets.

As with much of Sydney, Carlingford has relatively limited public transport access, which is reflected in the low public transport patronage by commuters. In the 2001 census, 6% of commuters travelled to work via trains while 2% used buses.
