The traditional land of the Darug Aboriginal people stretches roughly from the coast, north to Wisemans Ferry, west into the Blue Mountains to Hartley, south along both sides of the Nepean River to Appin, and then east approximately along the Georges River to Botany Bay.

This broad and beautiful region, which includes the Cumberland Plain where Blacktown is located, has been home to the Darug for thousands of years. Historical accounts and oral stories passed down by the Darug elders, speak of the Blacktown and Eastern Creek areas as being continuously occupied by Darug people.
