Located on the alluvial Hawkesbury River flats within the City of Hawkesbury LGA, and east of neighbouring Richmond, Windsor straddles two popular regions being one of Sydney’s outer western suburbs and also part of the Hawkesbury Valley region.

Just minutes from Richmond and the start of the Bells Line of Road that winds its way up through the foothills of the magnificent Blue Mountains, Windsor is one of the earliest European settled towns in Australia, with many historic buildings and landmarks still evident today.

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.1
