Kemps Creek, New South Wales

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kemps Creek is a suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. It is approximately 39 kilometres (24 mi) west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government areas of the City of Penrith and City of Liverpool. It is part of the Greater Western Sydney region.

History

Kemps Creek is named after Anthony Fenn Kemp (1773–1868), who was granted two adjoining properties in this district. The first grant here was 300 acres (1.2 km2) in 1810, straddling Elizabeth Drive and Mamre Road. The other was 500 acres (2.0 km2) granted in 1820 and named Mount Vernon. A school was established in 1885 called Exeter Farm School after the large property subdivision in neighbouring Badgerys Creek but the name was changed a few years later to Kemps Creek Public School.[2]

Kemps Creek Post Office opened on 27 March 1925.[3]

Commercial area

Elizabeth Drive runs through the suburb horizontally, and on it are the Rural Fire Service, petrol stations, cafes, telephone, post office and Bill Anderson Park, which has a playground and toilet facilities. The Kemps Creek commercial area is also now home to the new Animal Welfare League NSW[4] shelter that rehomes surrendered and abandoned animals plus offer pet boarding.[5]

Geography

The suburb is bound to the west by South Creek, and to the south-east by Kemps Creek. A number of reservoirs dot the landscape. The Sydney Catholic Lawn Cemetery is located on Western Road. The southern border is Fifteenth Avenue. To the north Mamre Road runs from south-east to north-west through the suburb. Kemps Creek flows into the main reservoir and then joins South Creek. The Mills Cross, a radio telescope, is situated between South Creek and the main reservoir, near Argus Technologies. The University of Sydney runs the Fleurs Radio Observatory and Fleurs Farm sites. Industry is present in such forms as Roladuct. In the far north of the suburb Ropes Creek flows in the north-west in a south-north direction and in the north-west, west of Mamre Road, is Cosgrove Hill. The northern boundary is the Sydney Water Supply Pipeline which goes from Prospect Reservoir to the west.[5]

Transport

The suburb of Kemps Creek is connected by the Westlink M7 Motorway.
