St Albans NSW

St Albans NSW in the heart of the Macdonald Valley
About 90 kilometres north west of Sydney.

St Albans and the surrounding area had a population of 305 people at the 2011 census. Two car ferries provide access to St Albans from the Sydney region along roads following the old goat and horse tracks on either side of the Macdonald River. Both roads meander (one partly sealed) through rich country and farms of cattle. On either side of the river are historic houses and spectacular sandstone towering hills.
