Roseville is a suburb on the Upper North Shore of Sydney in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Roseville is located 12 kilometres north-west of the Sydney central business district and sits across the local government areas of Ku-ring-gai Council and the City of Willoughby. Roseville Chase is a separate suburb to the east. [Gregory's Sydney Street Directory, Gregory's Publishing Company, 2007]


William Henry was one of Ku-ring-gai's first European settlers, who used the area for farming. There were a number of fruit orchards and market gardens in the area.

Other significant settlers were David Mathew, who owned a property called Clanville, and Richard Archbold, who was granted an area of 600 acres adjacent to Clanville. Archbold later acquired Clanville and set up an orchard on the property. Archbold's son-in-law had a stone cottage called Rose Villa, which was later demolished to make way for the northern railway line. The area eventually derived its name from Rose Villa. [The Book of Sydney Suburbs, Frances Pollon, Angus and Robertson 1990, page 229]


Roseville is the southern-most suburb in the municipality of Ku-Ring-Gai. It lies between Findlay Avenue and William Street to the south, and Bayswater Road, Abingdon Road, Chelmsford Avenue and Carnarvon Road to the north.

A narrow section of the southernmost area of Roseville, between William Street and Boundary Street, is in the Willoughby municipality. To the east, Roseville is bounded by the waterways of Middle Harbour and Moores Creek, and to the west it is bounded by the Lane Cove National Park. Roseville Chase is surrounded by Babbage Road, Middle Harbour and Moores Creek, and is bisected by Warringah Road, which Roseville Bridge carries over Middle Harbour. The names 'Roseville West', 'Roseville East' and 'East Roseville' are no longer in official use.

Roseville is a residential suburb, with medium to low density housing, lush and leafy roadsides and gardens. Its relatively quiet and calm environment means that property prices are considerably high.

Transport and Commercial Area

Roseville railway station is on the North Shore line of the CityRail network. Roseville has a small commercial area beside Roseville railway station on the Pacific Highway and Hill Street. The former Commonwealth Bank is a notable art deco building on the Pacific Highway.
