Lane Cove: On the Street Where You Live!
We would like to acknowledge the Cameraygal People of the Guringai Nation, the traditional owners of this area.
This site is a project of Lane Cove Library. We are endeavouring to build a site that provides information on the history of street names, parks, historical buildings and local identities within the Lane Cove Council area. This is an on-going project and the site will be updated regularly as more information comes to light. We will also be providing links to external sites that provide additional information.
If you have any information regarding historical buildings, events or changes in street names please contact the Lane Cove Library, Library Walk, Lane Cove NSW 2066, ph: 9911 3634.
The Street Team would like to acknowledge the invaluable contribution made by Pat Silman, a Local History volunteer at Lane Cove Library. Pat collated information from widespread sources and without her large parts of this site would not be available.
The Street Team: Karen, Naomi, Margaret, Pat, Eric and Will.

The area around Tambourine Bay was settled by returned soldiers and many of the streets in the area are named after battlegrounds, for example Romani (Egypt), Flaumont and Miraumont (France).
When researching 'Miramont' I came to the conclusion that this street name was a wrongly spelled version of Miraumont, a WW1 battleground where there is a war cemetery which my husband and I subsequently visited in June 2008
