District

Forest District is a general term for an area in the northern suburbs of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. The Forest District is also referred to as The Forest. These suburbs are located within the local government area of Warringah Council but are also often included in the Northern Beaches or Upper North Shore regions.

The Forest District is a descriptive name for the area which is located amongst the bushland of Kuring-gai Chase National Park and Garigal National Park. The regional designation is largely artificial and actual suburbs and localities that are considered to be in the "Forest District" can be somewhat amorphous and varies according to who is doing the listing. The region is commonly known as `No Man`s Land`.
