Suburb Profile - Duffys Forest
Duffys Forest is a suburb of northern Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Duffys Forest is 28 kilometres north of the Sydney central business district in the local government area of Warringah Council. Duffys Forest is considered to be part of the Northern Beaches region and the Forest District.
Duffys Forest is named after Patrick Duffy, who received a land grant here in 1857. He became a timber cutter who cleared a road through the bush to Cowan Creek, where he built a stone wharf for transporting timber. The wharf is still known as Duffys Wharf and the road is Duffys Track.
Waratah Park Earth Sanctuary (33.6761°S 151.1772°E) was a popular tourist attraction in Duffys Forest, famous as the film set of the popular television series Skippy the Bush Kangaroo. Much of the set and props are still there, although since being closed in August 2009 all of the animals including descendants of the kangaroos used in the series have now been removed.
The 'Duffys Forest Ecological Community' is an endangered ecological community of the Sydney basin
