A Guide to Castle Hill

Just outside of Sydney, about 15 minutes' drive into the Hills Shire, brings you to the leafy suburb of Castle Hill. It's the ideal place to choose for exploring the greater Sydney area, especially heritage-rich Parramatta and Wisemans Ferry, once a trading post for Newcastle coal.

The original plan for the suburb of Castle Hill was to create a smaller settlement near Sydney, near the Hawkesbury River that would enhance what was then a failing British colony. The area would serve as farming country, which would prosper, eventually proving the food and agriculture that the struggling community desperately needed at the beginning of the 1800s. In later years that wish did become a reality until the city of Sydney grew in leaps and bounds and the orchards and gardens became swallowed up in the sweeping hand of modern high rise buildings and suburbs. Large stately homes and manors occupy beautiful gardens, sweeping as far as the eye can see, and the quality of life in this quiet leafy neighbourhood is rated amongst the highest in both Sydney and Australia.

Good to Know

Being in such close proximity to the heart of Sydney, many of the city's residents come out to the "country" on weekends, as the Hill Shire is known for its rustic and rural feel. There are loads of nurseries, coffee shops, galleries, cafes, farmers markets and fresh produce is still sold from roadside stalls. A Castle Hill holiday home would suit any family wanting to explore the city surrounds, but have the quiet country feel in between the hectic pace and traffic.

Things to See and Do in and around Castle Hill

Castle Hill is not rich in tourist sights and activities. Its attraction lies in its tranquil, scenic setting and proximity to the mass of delights of the Hills Shire and Sydney.

Castle Hill Heritage Park is one place in the suburb that is definitely worthy of visitors' attention. It is a pretty 20 hectares of rolling landscape that features walkways, cycle tracks, picnic areas, kids playgrounds and some pockets of critically endangered blue gum forest. One track takes you on a timeline of history from its time as an area of indigenous people to the present day.

Castle Hill Showground is the centre for agricultural and horse shows of the surrounding area which is commonly called the Garden Shire.

As part of the Hills Shire, there are many reserves and areas of natural beauty in easy striking distance of Castle Hill; it's really just a case of deciding in which direction you want to head.

Wisemans Ferry is just up the road from Castle Hill and is a beautiful town set amid stunning scenery on the Hawkesbury River. Take a wander around its truly historic centre or catch a ride on the ferry, the longest continuously running ferry in Australia. Intrepid walkers should find their way to Hawkins Lookout for some truly spectacular views well worth the effort of the trip.

The Koala Park Sanctuary is not very far from Castle Hill, in the West Pennant Hills and it has become legendary around the world for their work with the rehabilitation and conservation of Koala Bears. Here you can have a cuddle with one of the gorgeous animals, enjoy the four times a day feedin, go on a guided tour, check out the sheep shearers and have lunch and a BBQ.

Hills Leisure Centre is a wonderful day outing especially when the weather isn't so great. Indoor climbing, a play area, ten pin bowling and a day spa all rolled into one.

As to anything and everything else, there are sights and attractions in every direction from Castle Hill, far too numerous to mention here - it's all a matter of taste and how much time you have.
