Be a part of the change at Tahmoor and in the whole of the Wollondilly Shire.
Population: 4340 (Council statistics, 2001) Tahmoor was originally traversed by European settlers as early as 1798 - a party led by John Wilson, although it is probable that he had been here before. Wilson was a colourful character, ex-convict, who went 'wild' and travelled with the aborigines for some years in the bush, only to return to the colony at Sydney and act as guide for early explorations south of 'The Cowpastures'. There is no doubt he passed through Tahmoor, on to Bargo and near to the present Mittagong in the Highlands. It is also probable he knew the (Gundagarra) aboriginal peoples who originally lived in this area, and from whom the town's name today is derived. The word 'tahmoor' is said to be either the name for the ceremonial mound the aborigines used for some of their ceremonies, or the aboriginal name for the 'bronzewing pigeon' found in these parts.
