Located 31 km south-west of the Sydney CBD, Hammondville is part of the local government area of the City of Liverpool. 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 in response to an increase in population. Today the area is still a small suburb but offers lots of amenities including schools and a shopping village. Hammondville is also recommended for retirees, with HammondCare, an aged care provider, as well as residential care and community services.
Hammondville has easy access to the M5 Motorway and the railway station at Holsworthy.
