Maraylya

Maraylya is located approximately 50 kilometres northwest of the Sydney CBD in the Shire of Baulkham Hills.

The original inhabitants of the Maraylya area were the Darug people. The Darug were the custodians of the majority of what is now the Greater Sydney region. They were divided into a number of different ‘clans’, whose quick demise upon European settlement has sadly resulted in very little information remaining on how the local area was utilised.

This locality, east of Windsor, was originally known as Forrester after an early landholder Robert Forrester who was granted 30 acres at ‘Mulgrave Place’ in 1794. In the 1920s the local Progress Association changed the name to Maraylya, which is presumed to be an Aboriginal name, but the meaning is unknown.

Cattai Creek runs through this rural area leading to Cattai National Park.

Towns surrounding Maraylya include: Cattai, Glenorie, Nelson and Pitt Town.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
