Where is the Hawkesbury?

The local Government area of Hawkesbury is the largest metropolitan council in New South Wales, and located on the fringe of Greater Western Sydney. The Hawkesbury City Council area extends from the Cumberland Plain in the south and east through the Blue Mountains to the western north. It is also bounded by bushland areas of the Baulkham Hills and Hornsby Shires. It is divided by five rivers and includes the Hawkesbury, Nepean, Grose, Colo and McDonald River valleys.

The Hawkesbury district has a long history that includes a rich Indigenous cultural heritage established by the Darug people, as well as a distinctive built environment dating back to the earliest days of the colony.

In addition to Governor Macquarie's historic five towns of Windsor, Richmond, Pitt Town, Castlereagh and Wilberforce, the region has a number of small villages for the traveler and visitor to explore including the mountain villages of Bilpin, Kurrajong and Grose Vale and the river towns of Wisemans Ferry, St Albans, Ebenezer, Sackville and Lower Portland

In November 2000, the World Heritage Committee added the Greater Blue Mountains Area to the World Heritage Register. The Greater Blue Mountains covers a total area of 1.03 million hectares. It includes seven national parks - the Blue Mountains, Wollemi, Yengo, Nattai, Kanangra-Boyd, Gardens of Stone and Thirlmere Lakes National Parks - along with the Jenolan Caves Karst Conservation Reserve.

The National Parks and Wildlife Service Hawkesbury Area office will shortly relocate to a site at Bilpin, along Bell's Line of Road and incorporate the facility into a Visitor Centre for the Greater Blue Mountain World Heritage Area. This will enhance visitors experiences in the Greater Blue Mountains area.
