We are located in the heart of the Richmond township at 116 March Street, directly opposite historic Richmond Park.
The Hawkesbury enjoys a semi-rural lifestyle, showcased by the Hawkesbury River, at the foot of the Blue Mountains, with rural and hobby acreage farms, charming town centres and real sense of community.
The original home of the Darug aboriginal peoples, Richmond was established as one of Governor Macquarie’s five Macquarie Towns around 1811. Our town was the third area in Australia to be settled by Europeans. Richmond also features Hawkesbury District Showground established c.1845, Hawkesbury Race Club established c. 1871, Western Sydney University formerly Hawkesbury Agricultural College, established in 1891 and RAAF Base Richmond established in 1923.
