The administrative centre of Wollondilly Shire is Picton, which is reached, in an easy 90-minute drive from Sydney or by train. Originally known as Stonequarry, the first land grant was to Major Henry Colden Antill. His son built Jarvisfield, which, today, provides the clubhouse for the Antill Park Golf Club. Picton thrives on its past with many historic buildings in the town and surrounding areas. Its railway heritage is particularly significant and is symbolised by a unique and splendid railway viaduct.
The Picton Walking Tour brochure highlighting the towns and historic building is available from the Wollondilly Visitor Information Centre.
