The Division of North Sydney is an Australian electoral division in the state of New South Wales. The division is named after the North Sydney area where it is located. It was proclaimed in 1900 and was one of the original 75 divisions contested at the first federal election.
In addition to North Sydney, the electoral division includes the suburbs of Artarmon, Cammeray, Cremorne, Cremorne Point, Crows Nest, Gore Hill, Greenwich, Henley, Hunters Hill, Huntleys Point, Kirribilli, Lane Cove, Lane Cove North, Lane Cove West, Lavender Bay, Linley Point, Longueville, McMahons Point, Milsons Point, Naremburn, Neutral Bay, Northbridge, Northwood, Riverview, St Leonards, Waverton, Wollstonecraft, Woolwich and parts of Castlecrag, Gladesville and Willoughby.
Like most seats on Sydney's North Shore, North Sydney has been a conservative stronghold for over a century. It is one of only two original divisions in New South Wales, along with neighbouring Wentworth, which have never been held by the Australian Labor Party. It has been held by a member of a non-Labor party for all but six years of its existence, when held by independent Ted Mack between 1990 and 1996.
