Where’s Ku-ring-gai?

Ku-ring-gai is situated on the North Shore of Sydney.  It encompasses the suburbs of Roseville, Lindfield, Killara, Gordon, Pymble, Turramurra, Warrawee and Wahroonga, straddling the ridge that carries the railway from North Sydney to Hornsby; and St Ives, straddling Mona Vale Road as it heads towards the coast.  The area receives high rainfall, and its slopes fall steeply towards national parks on three sides – Lane Cove, Garigal and Ku-ring-gai Chase.  Other natural features of Ku-ring-gai are its tree canopy (including important remnant Blue Gum High Forest), its wild life, its watercourses and its readily erodible soils.  More»

Ku-ring-gai’s built heritage features some of the best in NSW – twenty-seven precincts were recommended by the National Trust in 1997 as Urban Conservation Areas.  They include not only fine examples of Federation and Inter-war architecture, but many of these precincts display an overall quality and consistency that mark them out as being of State and National heritage significance.  More»

About FOKE

We are a community group manned completely by volunteers.  Our membership fees have not increased since our inception in 1994 when we opposed the overdevelopments starting to spring up in Ku-ring-gai.  In order to continue our work, we are more than ever most appreciative of, and indeed dependent on, membership fees and donations accompanying your renewals.

Our achievements

Over the past 2-3 years some of our achievements have been:

FOKE has always assisted residents and groups aiming to preserve the character of Ku-ring-gai or the amenity for its residents.  Aside from many individual residents we have assisted the specific issue groups such as CARPARK (Citizens Against Reduced Parking at Railway Killara), Save Gordon Golf Course, Gilda Road Residents' Group, Better Planning Network, Friends of Lindfield, and Our Land Our Water Our Future (Nature Conservation Council)
