Picton - Cities, Towns and Localities
Located about 80 km south west of Sydney in the Wollondilly region, is the township of Picton. Originally known as ‘Stonequarry’, the first land grant was to Major Henry Colden Antill.

The then government proclaimed Picton Village in October, 1845. The name Picton comes from Sir Thomas Picton who was one of Britain’s most illustrious generals. There are many places that were named after him around the world, including Western Australia, New Zealand and a mountain in Tasmania named Mount Picton.

The main administrative centre for the Wollondilly region, Picton also has a number of attractions from the many historic buildings through to nearby national parks, reserves, and numerous dams providing popular destinations for families, with picnic and other facilities.

Townships and villages in the area include: Appin, Bargo, Belimbla Park, Brownlow Hill, Buxton, Camden Park, Cawdor, Couridjah, Douglas Park, Glenmore, Menangle, Mount Hunter, Mowbray Park, Nattai and the Burragorang Valley, Oakdale, Picton, Pheasants Nest, Razorback, Tahmoor, Silverdale, The Oaks, Theresa Park, Thirlmere, Warragamba, Wilton, Yanderra, and Yerranderie.
