View up Wollondilly RiverLocated on the south western perimeter of Sydney, from which it is only an hour’s drive from Sydney, Kingsford Smith Airport and Port Botany, is Wollondilly, a region that takes its name from the Wollondilly River.

From the foothills of the Southern Highlands, the Wollondilly region stretches over 2,500 km encompassing Bargo in the south, Warragamba in the north, Appin and Menangle in the east, and Nattai wilderness, Yerranderie Village and Burragorang Valley to the west.

A popular holiday destination, Wollondilly is situated about 30 minutes from Wollongong and the southern beaches and just over two hours drive from Canberra. The region is also the water catchment for several of Sydney’s main dams, the village of Warragamba being nestled by the side of Warragamba Dam.

Wollondilly Towns and Villages
• Appin
Located in the north eastern corner of the Wollondilly region, the village is named after Appin in Scotland. The village of Appin dates back to 1811, being the fifth village in the colony. Today, in the Appin you can view several early buildings, including the Appin Public School, which was the first school to be built under Henry Parkes’ Public Schools Act of 1866.

Hamilton Hume spent his childhood in Appin, and an obelisk stands near his former home on Appin Road at the place where he was to set off in 1824 with Captain Hovell on their voyage of discovery to Port Phillip Bay in Victoria.
