Toongabbie

Suburb

Residential suburb west of Parramatta, built on Burramattagal country. It was the site of one of the colony's earliest successful farms worked with convict labour. As the area that grew up around the railway station from 1880, it is distinguished from Old Toongabbie alongside the creeks.

Traditional country of the Darug people, Toongabbie was settled as early as 1792 and quickly became an important farming centre, worked by convicts. Roads and railways shaped the town's growth, as it was increasingly integrated into Sydney's western suburbs.
