Tahmoor is a town in the Macarthur Region of New South Wales, in the Wollondilly Shire, located approximately 80 kilometres southwest of Sydney’s CBD, close to Camden and Campbelltown.
Tahmoor, originally named Myrtle Creek, was a farming area on the Great Southern Road, later named the Hume Highway. When the new Main Southern Railway line opened in 1919, it included a railway station named Tahmoor.
The suburbs of the Wollondilly region – including Picton, Tahmoor, Thirlmere, Appin, Bargo and Warragamba – retain the tranquillity of small country towns with the convenience of all the modern amenities and a thriving and growing community. The region’s farms and villages, natural attractions and vast wilderness areas are a haven for nature-loving visitors with Thirlmere Lakes National Park, a major natural drawcard.
Rich in colonial and late Victorian architecture, Wollondilly Shire also has many cafes, arts and craft shops. Choose one of the scenic drives to explore this region.
Wollondilly Shire Council has thrown its support behind the Wilton Junction Master Plan which is a proposal to create a vibrant new community in Sydney’s growing southwest that will deliver high quality new housing, jobs close to home, supporting infrastructure and services and a range of complementary land uses.
Approximately 11,000 to 13,000 homes will be provided for 30,000-35,000 people. The new town centre will be a great place to live, featuring community facilities, recreational opportunities, commercial and retail space, health and education services as well as civic and cultural facilities.
