Property Advert of the Week: "Become a Pitt Street Farmer" (1968)

In 1968, John L. Nichols & Co promoted the Llandilo Park estate at Llandilo with acreage of up to 7.5 acres available. With the promise of local services and in easy reach of Sydney, it gave one the opportunity to see a "treechange" without having to leave the Sydney metropolitian area.

Five decades later, the suburb itself is still semi rural. However, Sydney's urban sprawl is licking at its edges, particularly with the recently built suburb of Jordan Springs and Cranebrook. The State Government is also proposing to see a new freeway extension from the M2 through the suburb to link the Bells Line of Road at Kurrajong Heights.
