Where you’ll be

Castlereagh, New South Wales, Australia

Castlereagh is one of Sydney’s most historic towns. It was founded in 1810 as one of Governor Lachlan Macquarie’s five towns. You can get a glimpse of its history when you visit Castlereagh cemetery with its oldest headstone dated 1814. It and the nearby Castlereagh Church and Council chambers are featured in the Penrith Heritage Drive.

The original parts of Glen Idyll was built in the 1880s and was a functional dairy farm for much of the 1900’s. When you stay, you can see the original sandstone building which housed the kitchen (separate from the main house, just in case it burnt down).

The 2000 Sydney Olympics brought world class sporting facilities to the area. A short drive gets you to the Penrith Whitewater Stadium and the International Regatta Centre, both still host world sporting events.

Glen idyll overlooks lakes as part of the Penrith Lakes Scheme. You will see lots of natural bird life from the deck and verandah if you are a keen birdwatcher.
