Arcadia is derived from Arcadia, a region in Greece and in Greek mythology was a pastoral retreat.Arcadia Post Office opened on 1 December 1895 and closed in 1974.
The name Dooral appeared on Surveyor James Meehan’s map of April 1817 and originally covered the whole area which includes present-day Arcadia, as well as Dural, Glenorie, and Galston.
Timber cutters opened up the area in 1817 and the early settlements were originally known as Upper, Middle, Lower, North, and Little Dural.
The name Arcadia was given to a public school that opened in this area in 1895 and was later adopted for the suburb.
Arcadia is located approximately 40 kilometers northwest of Sydney in the Shire of Hornsby. The original inhabitants of the Arcadia area were the Darug people.
The Darug were the custodians of the majority of what is now the Greater Sydney region. They were divided into a number of different ‘clans’, whose quick demise upon European settlement has sadly resulted in very little information remaining on how they utilized the local area. Arcadia offers the popular ‘Garden of Many Nations,’ which showcases themed gardens including a Japanese, Meditation, and Traditional English representation.
Towns surrounding Arcadia include Berrilee, Galston, Glenorie, and Middle Dural. According to the 2016 census of Population, there were 1,385 residents in Arcadia. 81.4% of residents were born in Australia.
