Cammeray is a suburb on the lower North Shore of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Cammeray is located 5 kilometres north of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of North Sydney Council.
Cammeray is mostly a residential area. Some houses have waterfront access such as those in Cowdroy Avenue and the end of Cammeray Road, leading down to Folly Point.
Miller Street, the main thoroughfare of Cammeray, is lined with restaurants influenced by Chinese, Thai and Italian cuisine, as well as several cafes, the local post office, a petrol station and many other small businesses. The Green Park shopping area makes a small hamlet, within the village of Cammeray.
Cammeray is the last of the south-bound bus stops for services that operate via the Warringah Freeway to Sydney's Central Business District, although other south-bound services do travel to North Sydney, Milsons Point and Crows Nest. An ornate sandstone bridge spanning Tunks Park that once carried trams to Northbridge in the earlier half of the 20th century can be seen at the northern end of Cammeray. It is now a vital link to suburbs north of Cammeray, and is an easily recognised feature to people living in the surrounding area.
Cammeray Public School is situated on the corner of Palmer and Bellevue Streets. Cammeray pre school is located at Warwick Avenue in Green Park. All Saints Anglican Church is the church in Cammeray.
Tunks Park is a recreation area, popular among joggers and those wishing to walk their dogs. It also provides Cammeray with three sporting fields, notably cricket pitches during the summer, soccer, rugby league and union fields during the winter.
The Norths Pirates Junior Rugby Union Club, is Cammeray's local village rugby union team who play all home games at the western field of Tunks Park. The North Sydney Brothers, a junior rugby league club also have all their home games there as well as the rugby league teams of Marist College North Shore.
At the eastern edge of Tunks Park is a small boat ramp allowing small boats to enter Middle Harbour. Because Tunks Park is at the bottom of a valley and partially enclosed by bushland, it has several short, easily navigable bushwalking trails that lead up to Naremburn to the west and Northbridge to the east. A skatepark and youth plaza is also scheduled to be completed soon.
Cricket and golf are both well represented with the Cammeray Cricket Club and Cammeray Golf Club. Cammeray Golf Course is a nine-hole course that is situated between Cammeray Road and the Warringah Freeway. Situated near the golf course is a tennis club and soccer field where the local junior soccer team, the North Sydney Bears, practice.
Cammeray also has a mixture of social focal points, including the ANZAC Club and the North Sydney Leagues Club.
Cammeray Marina is on Cowdroy Avenue.
