Local-and-Fam-History-250x160-Collingwoodhouse1.jpgThe Colonial Heritage of Western Sydney App is a joint venture between Liverpool, Camden, Penrith, and Hawkesbury Councils to acknowledge and celebrate the local government area's rich European settlement history since 1788.

Liverpool was founded in 1810 by Governor Macquarie and is one of the earliest colonial urban settlements in Australia. This combined area is rich with historical and interactive information about buildings, churches, cemeteries, roads, and bridges.The combined area covered by the app has been named "HoWS" being an abbreviation of "Heritage of Western Sydney".
