The traditional land of the Darug People, Marsden Park is located within the Blacktown local government area. Taking it’s name from Samuel Marsden, a Church of England priest and landowner of the area.
Known as one of the commercial hotspots of Western Sydney, housing IKEA, Costco and a Lindt Factory Outlet, most people only venture to the area when in need of homemaker suppliers. However, we’re here to tell you all the hidden gems you can find!
Start off your day by visiting the Bait Ul Huda Mosque on Hollinsworth Road, Marsden Park.
Also known as House of Guidance, the Mosque is run by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Australia. It’s the first Ahmadiyya Mosque in Australia and was built in 1987. Looking onto the Mosque is truly mesmerising, and a great feature of the surrounding area.
When you’re feeling hungry enough, head over to the other side of the homemakers centre to The Marsden Brewhouse.
Walking into the venue you’ll see the huge double story glass walls looking into the brewery tanks allowing you to see the entire beer-making process before you sample the results!
Once you finally walk into the venue you’ll be met with a wonderfully designed space, leading out into an outdoor terrace area perfect to sit in the sunshine. Choose to sit outside in the terrace underneath the large tree or pull up a seat inside at either the Pavilion, Tonda Pizzeria, or Public House.
The extensive menu ranges from classic pub staples, all the way through to pizzas, salads, and freshly made pasta.
After trying a few of the dishes and beers spend some time exploring the grounds of the Brewhouse if you haven’t already! When you’re ready, head over to the new housing estate Sandstone Ridge. In here, you’ll find the Stonecutters Ridge Golf Club, and some wonderful public parks and parklands.
The Stonecutters Ridge Golf Club has been designed by the great Greg Norman and features two dining options. The architecturally designed building and views overlooking the golf course is enough of a reason to stop by and have yourself a drink!
