Nelson

Nelson is located approximately 45 kilometres northwest of the Sydney CBD in the Shire of Baulkham Hills.

The original inhabitants of the Nelson area were the Darug people. The Darug were the custodians of the majority of what is now the Greater Sydney region. Nelson is named after Admiral Horatio Nelson, 1st Viscount Nelson, the hero of the Battle of Trafalgar. Governor William Bligh served under his command at the Battle of Copenhagen (1801) and received a land grant in this area, which he named ‘Copenhagen Farm’ in honour of the battle.

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.
