Visit Rouse Hill Estate
By public transport
We are located about 45km northwest of the Sydney CBD, just off the Windsor Road opposite Bunnings Hardware.
There are buses from Parramatta, Blacktown and Sydney CBD to Rouse Hill town centre, which is about 2km or 30 minutes on foot from Rouse Hill House & Farm.
The closest Metro stations are Rouse Hill Station and Tallawong Station, which are about 2.5km and 3km to Rouse Hill House & Farm respectively. To walk would take approximately 31 minutes from Rouse Hill (along a main road). Walking from Tallawong Station is not recommended due to uneven surfaces caused by roadworks. The closest train station is Riverstone, which is about 7.5km to Rouse Hill House & Farm. To walk would take well over an hour and is not fully paved. You can call Premier Taxis on 131 017 or book a ride-share service to pick you up from the station (there is no bus service from the Metro stations).
Please note that during special events we may offer a local shuttle bus. This information will be posted on this page before and during the event.
