Faulconbridge

Suburb

Faulconbridge is a charming Blue Mountains village on the Great Western Highway.

One of the earliest residents was the “Father of Federation”, Sir Henry Parkes, who moved to the area in 1877 and purchased 600 acres. It is said that the original railway platform at Faulconbridge was specifically built to serve his residence which was known as Faulconbridge House. The town was named after Parkes’s home. Faulconbridge was the maiden name of Sir Henry Parkes’ mother. Parkes is buried in Faulconbridge Cemetery. Visit the Corridor of Oaks where a tree has been planted for each Australian Prime Minister.

Faulconbridge was also home to the Australian writer and artist Norman Lindsay. Author of the popular children’s story The Magic Pudding, his former house now operates as the Norman Lindsay Gallery and Museum. Each February the Gallery hosts Jazz in the Gardens, take a picnic and be entertained in the lovely grounds.
