Northwood, in the Municipality of Lane Cove, is a suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. It remains famous for being the second smallest suburb in Sydney, after Beaconsfield. Northwood is approximately 7 km north-west of the Sydney CBD; many of its homes look down on Woodford Bay. Property consists entirely of free-standing houses. The 2005 Sydney Morning Herald Homes guide found Northwood to be the 19th most expensive suburb in Sydney.

The nearest railway station is St. Leonards, and buses run frequently through the area. Northwood ferry wharf is popular among office workers in the CBD as Circular Quay is only a 5 minute ferry ride away.

Northwood was the home of landscape artist Lloyd Rees for many years before his death in 1988. Many of his later paintings are of the area.
