When Blaxland, Wentworth and Lawson camped at Springwood in May 1813, they looked for a ridge which would take the over the Mountains, they came across Faulconbridge.
After the railway line opened up access to the Blue Mountains, Faulconbridge was settled in the 1870’s, with one of the earliest resident being the “Father of Federation”, Sir Henry Parkes, purchasing 600 acres of land. He named the land “Faulconbridge” after his mother, whose maiden name was Faulconbridge.
Bound by Blue Mountains National Park in the north, Springwood Creek, Sassafras Park and Davies Avenue in the east and Blue Mountains National Park in the west, Faulconbridge is firmly nestled amongst the natural beauty of the area.
A suburb soaked in history and hidden treasures, you will find the famous Norman Lindsay Gallery on Chapman Parade, Corridor of Oaks, Prime Ministers Avenue and Faulconbridge Point which overlooks the Grose River and the surrounding valleys.
A popular area for those wishing to enjoy the convenience of city living yet be surrounded by the peace of bushland. Many local have lived in the area for many years, and are enjoying their children now raise their families close by.
