Chipping Norton, located 27 km south-west of the Sydney CBD, is part of the local government area of the city of Liverpool and is in the Greater Western Sydney region.
Chipping Norton began as a land grant to Thomas Moore, a master boat builder. This started the settlement in the area in the early 1800s, the first in the city of Liverpool. There was little growth until the 1880s but it continued in the early 1900s when farms were established as part of the Returned Soldier Settlement Scheme. Rapid growth took place after the war.
Today Chipping Norton is an established residential area, with a thriving commercial and industrial sector that provides plenty of local employment opportunities.
It is considered one of the most affluent suburbs in south-western Sydney, as shown by the many beautiful and generous-sized homes overlooking the many parks in Chipping Norton.
