Suburb Profile - Gore Hill
Gore Hill is an urban locality on the North Shore of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Gore Hill locality located in the western part of the suburb of Artarmon, and the north west of the suburb of St Leonards.
It takes its name from William Gore, the provost marshal in colonial Sydney, who had a property of 150 acres (0.61 km2) in the area.
It is best known for being where the Gore Hill Freeway from Lane Cove to the Sydney Harbour Bridge starts and ends and as the location of the ABC's Sydney television transmission tower, which is about 170 metres high. For more than 40 years Gore Hill was probably best known as the location of the ABC's Sydney television studios which were established in 1956 and which operated until 2002, when the site was closed and sold, and the ABC moved its television operations to its combined TV-radio studio facility in Ultimo.
Fox Sports (Australia) occupy a new state-of-the-art headquarters at Gore Hill, operational since late 2012.
ATN Channel 7 also had a transmission mast at Gore Hill but this was demolished in the early 1970s. Gore Hill is also home to Royal North Shore Hospital, historic Gore Hill cemetery, and Gore Hill Oval, home of the North Shore Bombers Australian Rules Football club.
Bricks were first made at Gore Hill in 1828 and continued until 1954. A siding was constructed from the North Shore Railway to a brickworks operated by the North Sydney Brick and Tile Company in 1902. Horses hauled open 4-wheel goods wagons over the line. Soon after 1910, the line was extended through a tunnel under Reserve Road. Though blocked from public access, this tunnel remains and forms part of Austcorp's Winevault complex.
