Dural and surrounds

The semi-rural suburb makes you relax, slow down, and take a big breath of fresh air.

We have been selling homes and acreage in the Dural area since 1968 and appreciate all this area has on offer. The semi-rural suburb makes you relax, slow down, and take a big breath of fresh air. It's a little like taking a step back in time, when the pace of life was slower, and the local shopkeeper knew everybody's name. There's a lovely mix of gardens, orchards, and hobby farms.

Just west of Castle Hill and Sydney's Koala Park, it's also a convenient central hub to explore further south-west to the Blue Mountains, or further north and west to Wiseman's Ferry. The original inhabitants were the Darug people. The name Dural was derived from a Darug word 'Dooral Dooral', which means 'a smoking tree', as early white settlers would burn the stumps after logging. For many years timber cutting and fruit growing were the main industry, and the area provided much of Sydney's fresh produce.

Having both grown up on acreage properties, we understand the benefits of the lifestyle on offer in our local area.
