Course and features
Gore Creek rises in the suburb of Lane Cove on the western side of the Pacific Highway, south of Epping Road and the Lane Cove Tunnel, and east of Burns Bray Road; near the Lane Cove shopping village. The creek flows generally south then south-east, through the Lane Cove Bushland Park and Gore Creek Reserve before reaching its confluence with the Lane Cove River, near Greenwich Point ferry wharf and west of Wollstonecraft railway station. The course of the creek is approximately 2 kilometres (1.2 mi).
The creek is traversed by River Road at Northwood.
Gore Creek draws its name from the suburb of Gore Hill, named in honour of William Gore (1765–1845), the provost-marshal under Governor William Bligh. Gore received a grant of 150 acres (0.61 km2) in 1810 and named it Artarmon after his family estate in Ireland.
