Menangle is part of the Wollondilly Shire. Established as a village to service the operations of Camden Park Estate, the railway bridge over the Nepean River is the oldest in use today. The opening of the railway in 1863 enabled overnight milk deliveries to the Sydney Market, beating the summer heat in the days before refrigeration. The Store, built in 1904, sells everything from antiques to groceries to saddlery and ice creams.
One of the self-guided walking or driving tours of Menangle is the perfect way to explore the area and be taken on a journey rich in history.
