Facilities
Wollondilly is a popular destination for visitors, yet the name is often unfamiliar until memories stir with the mention of more prominent features such as Razorback Range and Burragorang Valley or towns like Picton, Appin and Warragamba.

Wollondilly, on the south western outskirts of Sydney and at the foothills of the Southern Highlands, is surrounded by spectacular, natural beauty and rural pastures. It's 2,560 square kilometres stretch from Bargo in the south, Appin and Menangle in the east, Warragamba in the north with the Nattai wilderness, Yerranderie Ghost Town and Burragorang Valley to the west.

The district is rich in aboriginal and European history. The earliest known inhabitants of the district were the natives of the Gundangurra Tribe, who gave the area its name. 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.

You can take the Wollondilly Harvest Experience and enjoy the fruits of the region.
