Along with Liverpool, Camden and Campbelltown we are the birthplace of Australian Agriculture. This is why our region is rich with historical early settler architecture.

As well there is a deep connection with indigenous heritage.

"The word Wollondilly is attributed to having three meanings including; “A place where spirits dwell” and “Water trickling over rocks”. The third meaning is connected to a legend about the burning black coal that was carried inside the skull of a bunyip, within a basket woven of waratah stems. “Worron” means black coal and “dilly” means carry basket."
