The heritage charm of Windsor can be fully explored on the heritage walk of the town. Windsor emerged along the banks of the Hawkesbury River and became the third settlement of the Colony in 1794. Originally called Green Hills, Windsor was officially named in 1810 by Governor Macquarie after the town in England. The five Macquarie Towns are Windsor, Richmond, Willberforce, Pitt Town and Castlereagh.
Windsor is famous for its many heritage buildings with some being designed by the convict architect Sir Francis Greenway, for example St Matthews Anglican Church, and The Windsor Courthouse.
The walk highlights the picturesque colonial town and the State Heritage Registered buildings on North Street. Don’t forget to pick up a map from the Visitor Information Centre so that you can take a stroll and step back in time.
