About Blacktown

Hardly an hour’s drive from Sydney CBD, Blacktown is a suburb in Blacktown City and the largest of any suburb in NSW. It is a place known for its cultural diversity. There are a number of hotels, restaurants and shops in the surrounding area, and Westpoint Blacktown is a major shopping centre. Other notable landmarks include Blacktown Workers Club, Blacktown Hospital, Blacktown Courthouse and Nine Network’s TV studio.

Blacktown Arts Centre

Located at the highest point of land in Blacktown, the Blacktown Arts Centre was initially built as an Anglican Church in the 1950s. In the year 1999, the building was deconsecrated. Later, it was refurbished as a multi-arts centre by the Arts NSW in association with the Blacktown Council. The Centre is dedicated to exploring culturally diverse work that reflects the history of the town. You will witness new experiences through a program of events, residencies, workshops, performances and exhibitions. We place Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginal communities and artists at the heart of program to develop new work drawing on issues of global significance.

Featherdale Wildlife Park

Featuring native birds and wildlife, including marsupials and reptiles, the Featherdale Wildlife Park in Doonside is situated on 7 acres of land acquired by Marjorie and Charles Wigg. It was initially a poultry farm, and the park was opened as a garden lined with Australian native plants and trees, in combination with a wildlife park. There’s an in-house amphitheatre, which runs a program known as ‘The Learning Burrow’ encouraging general information and education on animals.

Wet’n’Wild Sydney

If you want a true experience of a water park, you should definitely visit Wet ‘n’ Wild in Prospect, owned by Parques Reunidos. It features several water slide attractions, including a Surf Life Saving Club, a children’s area, a large wave pool, retail outlets, food and beverage. There are 4 water slide towers, each including a collection of slides categorised by different thrill levels. The Beach is a large wave pool at the centre of the Park, and it can produce waves of up to 2.3 metres.

The first slide tower contains 3 slides, namely T5, Bombora and Tantrum. Tantrum features 3 enclosed funnels, leading the ride to the splashdown pool. Bombora is a Tornado Wave Slide where you can ride up a large wave-shaped surface. On the other hand, the T5 slide features a large tunnel, in which riders oscillate to and forth.

The Nurragingy Nature Reserve

This protected area owned by Western Sydney Parklands Trust is an open forest, garden and nature reserve that was opened in the year 1981. The park is complete with features like large conference centres, picnic area, BBQ, New Zealand Garden, Chinese Garden, a native wildlife park, waterfalls, bridges and pavilions. The surrounding vegetation features a number of regionally specific and vulnerable species including Forest Red Gum Woodland, Shale Plain Woodland, Alluvial Woodland and Shale-Gravel Transition Forest.

Rouse Hill House

This heritage-listed property at the Windsor Road was initially the family residency of Richard Rouse. He was the Colonial Superintendent of Public Works and Convicts in Parramatta. Between 1813 and 1819, the farmhouse was developed in the typical Georgian style, and is now open to public, thanks to Sydney Living Museums. A majority of the earlier grounds have been turned into Rouse Hill Park and ensuing commercial and residential developments. In the year 1999, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

Chang Lai Yuan Chinese Gardens

This beautiful garden was constructed and designed by Liaocheng Municipal Government in China and Blacktown City Council, as a friendship gesture between 2 cities. It was given the name of ‘Chang Lai Yuan’ , which has been taken by adopting single character from each of the names Dongchang, which is the former name of the City of Blacktown and Liaocheng. The Chinese translation for garden is ‘Yuan’. The artistic style of the structure within the garden is based on the Qing Dynasty and Ming dynasty in China. It features a Waterfall Gazebo, Light Mountain Pavilion, Seven Arch Stone Bridge and a Gateway. The gardens are relaxing, scenic and stunning.
