History

Santo salvatore a narrawena sidney
St. Salvatore statue in St John Apostol church

Narraweena is an Aboriginal name meaning a quiet place in the hills. The suburb developed after World War II, when the land was subdivided, Narraweena Post Office opening on 1 April 1953.

Italian people from Pazzano since the 1980s have organised an annual Santo Salvatore's fiest, with a statue very similar to the original that is taken from the catholic church of Narraweena around the suburb and back.
