Ryde Accommodation

Ryde Hotels

Located 15km north-west of the Sydney CBD, Ryde is the third oldest settlement in Australia. From its rich history to the conception of Macquarie Park – coined Australia’s Silicon Valley – the best way to figure out what happened in between is to get in and book your Ryde accommodation.

Prior to settlement, the area that became Ryde was traditionally owned by the Wallumedegal clan. Bennelong, from the Wangal clan on the other side of the river, played a key role in sharing local information, Aboriginal customs and language during the colonisation of the area. He was so important to maintaining relations between the two groups that Governor Phillip built a hut for Bennelong on the site where the Sydney Opera House now stands at Bennelong point. As requested, Bennelong was buried at Kissing Point, looking over the river in North Ryde.

Today, Ryde has emerged as a bustling Sydney suburb. With many of Australia’s ‘Top 100’ companies operating out of Macquarie Park, big names like Microsoft and CSIRO are thrown around over coffee here. Macquarie University is another local institution incubating innovation and research. To offset the information overload, Macquarie Shopping Centre and Macquarie Park provide a bit of work-life balance in the area.

An enjoyable way to get around Ryde is to walk or ride through the streets, and onto one of the many parks and pathways in the area. The Cooks River Cycleway takes you from Ryde to Botany Bay, with many picture-worthy stops on the (long) way. For something closer, the Shrimptons Creek Bushwalk and Cycleway winds through numerous parks and reserves, as well as the busy hub of Macquarie Park. Come picnic time and Lane Cove National Park is one of Sydney’s favourite spots, complete with easy access and the running waters of Lane Cove River.

Getting to the CBD from Ryde is easy, with connections by rail, bus, road and two RiverCat terminals. More local connections can quickly take you across the river to the nearby Sydney Olympic Park, ANZ Stadium and the Sydney Showgrounds (perfect for the Royal Easter Show). If you’d rather shop local, Top Ryde City is a vibrant new precinct boasting over 270 specialty retail stores.

Shopping, scenic trails, cutting-edge research centres and a piece of Sydney’s history is waiting for you in Ryde. Wot’s not to love about it? Take a look at our range of Ryde hotels to get some holiday inspiration.
