Windsor, NSW

Suburb Profile

Overview

Regarded as the largest and most significant of the Five Macquarie Towns, Windsor is an historic township on the banks of the impressive Hawkesbury River. With beautifully preserved heritage buildings at every turn, spending a day in Windsor means stepping back in time to the early days of colonial Australia.

Named after England’s Windsor-on-the-Thames by Governor Macquarie in 1810, Windsor was the first of five colonial Macquarie towns founded in the region alongside Richmond, Wilberforce, Castlereagh, and Pitt Town. Much the same as the other towns, Windsor has managed to retain its roots with well-preserved historic buildings while benefitting greatly from modernisation. Contemporary shopping malls, wide-open streets, modern homes and urban developments have advanced Windsor into an accessible town both in ease of lifestyle and community feel.

The natural attractions of the stunning Hawkesbury River region are never far out of reach in Windsor. In addition to the picturesque banks of the Hawkesbury River, Governor Phillip Park at the end of George Street provides much outdoor exploration, while Howe Park’s 2 kilometre scenic walking trail will keep outdoor enthusiasts stimulated with exquisite views of the Hawkesbury expanse.

Located 56 kilometres north-west of the Sydney CBD and just 32 kilometres from the Blue Mountains, Windsor is ideally located for families and commuters who enjoy the hustle and bustle of city life during the week but crave a relaxing and less demanding pace of life on weekends.
