Nelson is located approximately 45 kilometres northwest of the Sydney CBD in the Shire of Baulkham Hills.



Nelson is named after Admiral Horatio Nelson, 1st Viscount Nelson, the hero of the Battle of Trafalgar. Governor William Bligh served under his command at the Battle of Copenhagen (1801) and received a land grant in this area, which he named 'Copenhagen Farm' in honour of the battle.

Nelson has a large number of rural farms and equestrian enthusiasts.

The original inhabitants of the Nelson area were the Darug people. The Darug were the custodians of the majority of what is now the Greater Sydney region. They were divided into a number of different ‘clans’, whose quick demise upon European settlement has sadly resulted in very little information remaining on how the local area was utilised.
