Waverton is a suburb on the lower North Shore of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Waverton is located 4 kilometres north of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of North Sydney Council.
Waverton was named in 1929 after the Waverton Estate of an early resident, Robert Old. The land once belonged to William Carr, who named it after an English village connected to his family.
The North Shore railway line was extended south from St Leonards to Milsons Point in 1893. The station in this area for nearly forty years was known as Bay Road, after the thoroughfare that crosses the railway line. The local progress association recommended a change and Waverton was chosen in 1929.
Australian Aborigines occupied the area until 1916. They left behind numerous signs of their presence. Sites include a large rock carving of a whale adjacent to the heritage-listed Coal Loader, waterholes and grinding grooves at Balls Head Reserve, plus engravings and grinding grooves in Waverton Park.
Waverton railway station is on the North Shore, Northern & Western Line of the Sydney Trains network. The naval base HMAS Waterhen is located on Balls Head Road.
Waverton has a village-like collection of shops around the railway station, including an IGA supermarket, bottle shop, butcher, dry cleaners, chemist and several restaurants and cafes including the Third Rail Cafe, Botanica Cafe, Bay Tandoori and Tamarind Thai. The ‘Grumpy Baker’ returned to Waverton late 2018 after a three year absence.
Balls Head Reserve, the bushland peninsula, is a popular picnic destination especially when there are harbour fireworks. Its one-way road system also forms part of a favoured route for walkers and joggers.
Waverton Park, on the banks of Berrys Bay, with views of Sydney Harbour, is another recreation focal point.
