Located 31 km south-west of the Sydney CBD, Hammondville is part of the local government area of the City of Liverpool. It is bordered in the north by the South Western Motorway, in the south by Williams Creek and Harris Creek, and in the west by Heathcote Road.
The area is named after Robert Hammond, a minister who founded a settlement for poor families during the Great Depression in the 1930s. Rapid development occurred in the 1970s, and in the 1990s, new dwellings were built, mostly medium density housing, in response to an increase in population.
Today, Hammondville is an established residential area comprising a variety of dwelling types, with some built on large parcels of land, some featuring beautiful gardens. This is a small suburb but it offers plenty of amenities and conveniences such as a local primary school and a shopping village.
Families with children will find this suburb attractive with its good schools, child care facilities, and accessible public transport. Medical services are conveniently available in the area, including pathology, physiotherapy, psychological and dental services.
Hammondville is also recommended for retirees. HammondCare, an aged care provider, offers hospital care, residential care and community services.
It is also not lacking in parks and recreation. Hammondville Park on Heathcote Road features a soccer and football field, netball courts, baseball diamonds and cricket court. In addition, there are several small parks with children’s playgrounds.
Hammondville has easy access to the M5 Motorway and the railway station at Holsworthy.
