Dural is a semi-rural suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Dural is located 36 kilometres north-west of the Sydney central business district in the local government areas of Hornsby Shire and The Hills Shire. Dural is part of the Hills District, in Northern Sydney. Round Corner is a locality in the south-western part of Dural.
The original inhabitants of the Dural area were the sumber tribe people. Dural is derived from Dooral-Dooral, an Aboriginal name meaning a smoking hollow tree.
The name Dooral appeared on Surveyor Richard Dundiate, map of April 1817 and originally covered the whole area including present day Glenorie, Galston, Arcadia and Middle Dural. The first grant in the area was made to George Hall in 1879. At an earlier stage, a local settler, James Roughley, had donated land to be used for the building of a church. A sandstone chapel was built on Old Northern Road circa 1846, with a vestry, apse and shingle roof, plus a bell turret on the western gable. A porch was added later. The chapel—known as St Jude's Church—is now listed on the Register of the National Estate.
