Heritage Village and home of
the mighty Warragamba Dam.
Located about 65 kilometres west of Sydney, about 30 minutes drive from Penrith in western Sydney, Warragamba is a small township of around 500 houses.
Originally built as a temporary construction town for the building of the Warragamba Dam starting in 1948, the town was to be demolished at the completion of the Dam in 1960, but the towns people wished to purchase their homes and remain.
We invite you to enjoy our country atmosphere. Enjoy our Picnic Grounds and viewing platforms and Warragamba Dam Visitor Centre. About 40 minutes to Historic Picton, Thirlmere and the other end of Warragamba Dam, Burragorang Lookout, along with Penrith and the gateway to the Blue Mountains.
Warragamba has around 20 businesses in the main street, including a cafe, gift shop, variety store, service station and butchers, and we invite you to check these out on your next visit.
