It is fascinating to learn that the suburb got its name from Greenwich located on the banks of the Thames River in London. This name stemmed when the Parramatta River was referred to as the ‘Thames of the Antipodes’. European settlement could be traced back to 1788 when Lt Henry Ball toured the area on his way back from Middle Harbour. A few years later, land grants were given to steer the suburb’s development.

One of the most notable developments in the suburb is Greenwich House. This house is a two stories high and built using sandstone in 1836; boasting a fantastic Georgian style and located at the corner of St Lawrence and George Streets. This house will enthral history buffs looking to explore the suburb.

Are you wondering where to enjoy a quiet weekend in the suburb? Make your way to the Greenwich Point Reserve. This family-friendly reserve has beautiful waterfront picnic spots and pockets of bushland with the added advantage of panoramic views. There are benches available to sit back and soak in the region’s natural beauty.

Manns Point Park has excellent views of the harbour, making it a favourite spot for photographers. Carry your picnic mat and enjoy a delightful snack, or take a stroll along the trails to appreciate the green space.

Alternatively, head out to Greenwich Baths located at the extreme tip of Greenwich Point. The fully enclosed and shark-netted baths are ideal for an outdoor adventure with the whole family.
