Richmond - Cities, Towns and Localities
Located on the alluvial Hawkesbury River flats within the City of Hawkesbury LGA, and west of neighbouring Windsor, Richmond is considered one of Sydney’s outer suburbs.

Based at the foothills of the magnificent Blue Mountains, the Bells Line of Road starts in Richmond, winding its way over the Blue Mountains to finish in Lithgow.

It was in November, 1810 that Governor Macquarie set out to inspect the region in what is the western Sydney districts. Travelling with Mrs Macquarie and a group of aides and surveyors, the ‘tour of inspection’ followed along the Hawkesbury and Nepean Rivers, resulting in five settlements being surveyed, designated and named what is known collectively as the ‘Macquarie Towns’ – Windsor, Richmond, Castlereagh, Pitt Town and Wilberforce. Today, Richmond is the largest of these five towns.1
