Celebrate a rich history

An ancient land

The first Australians of this region are the Darug peoples of the Boorooberongal clan. With the help of archaeologists, we have preserved around 6,000 Aboriginal stone tools and carvings from Redbank’s sandstone terrain.


Governor Arthur Phillip first explored the Hawkesbury region.


First Australians and settlers clashed in the Battle of Richmond Hill. A memorial at St John of God Richmond Hospital commemorates those Darug people who died defending their land.

Governor Lachlan Macquarie travelled to Richmond Hill and Richmond Terrace (known as Belmont at the time) and chronicled the beauty of the land.

Sydney engineer Percival Alfred Yeomans purchased 740 acres at Redbank and pioneered sustainable agriculture. His farming methods are followed to this day, with some of his original keyline system at Redbank heritage protected as part of a community bike trail. He named his farm Yobarnie, a blend of his sons’ names.


The Commissioner of Railways purchased a section of the site for a railway siding and named it ‘Redbank’.

Agriculturalists from all over the country travelled to Yobarnie to learn about PA Yeoman’s ‘new method of farming’, designed to protect soil and maximise natural topography.

The ‘Yeomans Plow’ became popular with farmers and is still in production today.


PA Yeomans published The City Forest as a guide to developing land in sympathy with nature. His principles are still applied by many town planners and landscape architects.

Redbank North Richmond launched lot sales in October 2014 and sold all of Stage 1 (Yobarnie Rise) in just six weeks.


Redbank North Richmond’s first residents moved in and have started to build their new life, create their own patch and meet their new neighbours.


Some of our first residents included the lively community of people living at RSL’s Kingsford Smith Village and Ron Middleton Gardens Nursing Home.

Redbank contributed $2.4 million towards the North Richmond intersection which is now completed.

2017 Charities and local community


We continue to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for local charities and organisations including Pink Fins, Rural Fire Service, Rotary and local schools and sporting clubs to name a few. In 2017 alone Redbank and its partners raise over $375,000 for the Variety Children’s Charity.


The main entry road to Redbank opens for the first time showcasing what this beautiful land has to offer.

2018 School Foot Path


Redbank builds a 1.2km footpath from Peel Park to Richmond North Public School to make the area safer for the kids to walk to and from school. In this same year Redbank also builds a 300m footpath on Grose Vale Rd connecting existing residents to the new footpath network.


In January of this year Redbank registered its 500th lot, marking a stunning milestone to the Redbank story.

2019 Redbank Shopping Village


The Redbank Shopping Village obtains Development Approval in October 2019. From the traditional owners who traded here to the rural settlers who later farmed, this land has long played a part in our region’s rich history.


We are now creating 570 new jobs in construction each year and once established Redbank will contribute $473 million to the local economy.
