Winston Hills

Winston Hills is located approximately 30 kilometres northwest of the Sydney CBD in the Shire of Baulkham Hills.

The original inhabitants of the Winston Hills 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 resulted in very little information remaining on how the local area was utilised.

Winston Hills was formerly part of Governor Macquarie’s plan to make the area a ‘Model Farm’. The large migration of Italian and Maltese migrants after World War II helped to sustain farming well into the 20th Century. During the 1960s developers purchased large portions of these properties, naming their development Winston Hills Estate in 1965 after Britain’s wartime Prime Minister, Winston Churchill who died that year. The area was made a suburb in 1972.

A residential town at the end of the Hills M2 Motorway.

Towns surrounding Winston Hills include: Baulkham Hills, Northmead, Seven Hills and Toongabbie.

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.
