The Bradfield electorate is on Garigal land that belonged to the Darramuragal or Darug people who lived in the area for thousands of years.
Geographically Bradfield is located on Sydney's northern ridgeline that follows the Pacific Highway and North Shore railway line - and where its endangered remnant Blue Gum High forests grow. Bradfield suburbs are surrounded by national parks including Lane Cove, Garigal and Ku-ring-gai Chase.
Bradfield is about 101 sq.km and includes the bushland and garden suburbs of Killara, Lindfield, Gordon, Pymble, Turramurra, Wahroonga, Roseville, Castle Cove and parts of Normanhurst, Hornsby and Asquith.
The electorate is named after the respected NSW public servant Dr John Job Crew Bradfield, who was responsible for the expansion and electrification of the suburban rail network - including the north shore railway line that runs to Penrith. Dr Bradfield is best remembered for the construction of the Sydney Harbour Bridge that opened in 1932.
Dr Bradfield lived in Park Avenue, Gordon. He is commemorated by a small island garden on Rosedale Road, opposite his home.
There are approximately 96,000 voters in the electorate of Bradfield.
