Glenorie

Glenorie is located approximately 40 kilometres northwest of the Sydney CBD in the Shire of Baulkham Hills. The original inhabitants of the Glenorie 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 ムclans', whose quick demise upon European settlement has sadly resulted in very little information remaining on how the local area was utilised. Glenorie was originally known as North Dural. In April 1894 local residents offered the Colony's Postmaster General two names: Hazeldene and Glenorie. The name Glenorie was accepted because it had the support of the local progress association. Glenorie was named after a town in Scotland. The town of Glenorie has a rural flavour though it is close enough to the major suburbs of Castle Hill and Dural to offer all the necessary services. Activities for visitors include: bushwalking, scenic drives, parklands and tennis. Towns surrounding Glenorie include: Maraylya and Middle Dural Visitor Information: Sydney Hills Visitor Centre 656A Old Northern Road, Dural (02) 9651 4411 Email: enquiries@sydneyhills.com.au Website: www.sydneyhills.com.au

Roughley House and The Pines


Roughley House is a colonial heritage listed homestead established in 1856. Unlike other museums, Roughley House denotes the changing lifestyle of one family over five generations, each generation leaving their own stamp.

Clive Roughley the youngest of five children lived in Roughley House until his passing in 2002. In 1984 without any direct heirs to pass on his family home, Clive decided to sell Roughley House and The Pines to The Hills Shire Council. This was provided that the property would become a time capsule of colonial life and the Roughley family's story.

An event that runs to assist in raising awareness and funds for the property is Jazz at The Pines, a live concert series bringing together some of Sydney's top jazz bands.

Viewing of Roughley House is available by prior engagement. Schools, seniors and coach groups welcome. Morning/afternoon teas can be arranged for an additional cost.
