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 ム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 ム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.
