Location: Shanes Park


Shanes Park is a suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Shanes Park is located 50 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the City of Blacktown and is part of the Greater Western Sydney region. The suburb is surrounded by Llandilo, Berkshire Park, Marsden Park, St Marys, Marsden Park, Ropes Crossing, Willmot and Shalvey suburbs.

In 1960, the eastern portion of Shane’s Park was purchased by the commonwealth government to house an air navigational facility. Substantial heritage from this facility remains to this day. As this required very little space, most areas of the site were retained as intact bushland, while other areas regenerated naturally. The 560 site known as ‘Shane’s Park’ now comprises one of the largest remaining woodlands in the Cumberland Plain (western Sydney).
