South Maroota HumourSouth Maroota Humour

South Maroota is located approximately 65 kilometres northwest of the Sydney CBD in the Shire of Baulkham Hills.

The first European settler in the South Maroota area was Charles Williams, one of the first convicts to be released and granted land in the late 1700’s. In a tragic story, his wife and son died in a boating accident on the Hawkesbury River, leaving him depressed and unable to maintain his once profitable farm. As a consequence he was left in destitution.

The original inhabitants of the South Maroota 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.
