Linley Point is a small peninsular suburb located on the Lower North Shore of Sydney, in the local government area of the Municipality of Lane Cove, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. It is approximately 10 kilometres north-west of the Sydney central business district by car.


Linley Point is situated between the peninsula of Hunters Hill and Woolwich to the south, and Lane Cove to the north. It is less than 10 km to the Sydney CBD by car. Much of Linley Point is surrounded by the Lane Cove River, and is accessed from the south over Figtree Bridge, and from the north via Burns Bay Road. Due to its elevation many houses have views of the river and Sydney city, with some houses also having views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.[2]


Linley Point is one of the smallest suburbs in Sydney, with 131 dwellings.[3] It has undergone some redevelopment, particularly of older homes. Linley Point is also home to several historic houses, including the NSW heritage listed "Linley House" on View Street, and "Rockcliffe" on Lower Brooks Street.[4][5]
