Named after an original land holder Thomas Jamison, settlement of the area dates back to 1805 when the first land grant was made. Originally the area was used for rural farming until after the war, and in the 1970’s major development took place. In 1976, Jamisontown was gazetted as a neighbourhood.
Bounded by Jamison Road, York Road, the Western Motorway, and the Nepean River, Jamisontown is a mixed use area. Residential properties are blended with large retail shopping outlets and the bustling Mulgoa Road cuts through the suburb, providing travelers with direct access off the Western Motorway to Penrith CBD and other major attractions in the north.
Two key elements, location and large residential land parcels, make this area extremely popular to both first home buyers and the growing family. In fact, many Jamisontown locals opt to refurbish their property, or knock down and rebuild, opposed to relocating to newer housing estates in the surrounding area.
Major features of the area include:
- Nepean Shores Resort & Conference Centre,
- Sir John Jamison Catholic Cemetery – located in Lilac Place
- Robinson Park
- Jamisontown Public School
Only moments from the Western Motorway, yet teeming with the family atmosphere, Jamisontown offers the perfect balanced lifestyle. Residents are perfectly located to take full advantage of the facilities in their suburb and those close by.
