Greenwich is a suburb on the North Shore of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Greenwich is located 7 km north-west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the Municipality of Lane Cove. The suburb occupies a peninsula on the northern side of Sydney Harbour, at the opening of the Lane Cove River.
The suburb's name is derived from its namesake Greenwich, by the banks of the Thames in London. It features beautiful harbour views, a few pockets of bushland, a few local shops, a harbour swimming pool (with shark net) and Greenwich Public School. It is a short walking distance from trains, buses and ferries, as well as numerous restaurants and cafes. Every four years the Greenwich Village Games are held, featuring numerous sports and competitions.
Given the suburb's boundaries with Lane Cove National Park, it features considerable wildlife. This may be due to the vast array of ecosystems within such a small area, including rainforest and mangroves.
