Castle Hill is a suburb of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia located 30.1 kilometres north-west of the Sydney GPO, in the Hills District. Castle Hill is the administrative centre of the local government area of the Hills Shire and part of the suburb is located in the local government area of Hornsby Shire.HistoryIndigenous historyThe land that is now called Castle Hill was originally home to the Bidjigal people, who are believed to be a clan of the Dharuk people, who occupied all the land to the immediate west of Sydney. The best-known Aboriginal person from that time is Pemulwuy, a Bidjigal leader who led the resistance movement against the British forces, including sacking farms in Castle Hill, before his eventual capture and execution by the British militia.The Bidjigal people are today commemorated by Bidjigal Reserve which straddles the suburbs of Castle Hill, North Rocks and West Pennant Hills.European settlementThe first European visitors to the district were Governor Phillip and an excursion from Parramatta which reached the hills in April 1791. They wanted to find new country for settlement and farming to feed their struggling Sydney colony.
