The first European settlement began in the 1800s, with land primarily utilised for farming. It wasn’t until the early 1990s that major development took place, with the construction of a large number of dwellings in the area. Growth was slower between 2001 and 2011, with fewer dwellings built in the suburb.
Today, Carnes Hill is an established residential area, with an industrial precinct in the south-east.
One of its major features is the Carnes Hill Community and Recreation Precinct, a $30-million structure stretching across 7,000 sqm on the corner of Kurrajong and Cowpasture Rds. It features a library, a community centre, indoor recreation centre, a skate park, café and sufficient car and motorcycle parking spaces.
For the residents’ shopping needs, Carnes Hill Marketplace is one convenient place that offers a wide variety of shops, including Dan Murphy’s and Big W, as well as a Woolworths and other specialty food retailers.
There are good schools for the children of young families living in Carnes Hill, namely Greenway Park Public School in Wyattville Drive and Holy Spirit Catholic Primary School on 25 Main St.
