TheHillsShire
The Hills Shire is a local government area in the Greater Western Sydney region of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.Within 35-minutes of leaving Sydney’s CBD, you’ll find yourself racing past gleaming futuristic towers before arriving at luscious bushland parks with breathtaking mountainous peaks perched in the background, followed by expansive water views of the Hawkesbury River. The region provides an invigorating assault on all five senses and presents the complete package for anyone looking for an epic adventure, a day out with family or friends or a chilled afternoon along the water. The national parks and forests are home to native wildlife, waterfalls, sandstone cliffs and remnants from our early colonial past. There are lots of beautiful recreational locations to relax and unwind with an abundance of cycleways and walking tracks to keep you fit, happy and healthy. Most parks within the Hills Shire provide playgrounds, picnic tables, wood and electric barbecues. Grab a bite to eat, whether it’s lunch on the verandah of an old country pub, fish and chips along the riverfront, a coffee in a quaint cafe or experiencing the relaxed family atmosphere of the Ettamogah Pub or the super cool Castle Hill RSL - there are plenty of varied choices and the kids will be sure to enjoy their time. The Ettamogah Pub has so many kid friendly activities on weekends, you will be asking the kids to leave … not the other way around! The Hills are rich with early history with many significant buildings and sites providing a unique glimpse into the colonial past. A tour of Bella Vista Farm, Roughley House and The Pines provides a theatrical interpretative of what life was like. The Hills Shire has everything a family could ask for, lots to do and see, plenty of parks and playgrounds and a family friendly atmosphere.
