      The Oaks (including Oakdale, Mt Hunter, Glenmore, Nattai, the Burragorang Valley and Warragamba) Township on the south-western edge of the Sydney Basin The Oaks is located 76 km south-west of Sydney via the Hume Highway, 13 km west of Camden and 290 m above sea-level. Despite a long-standing economic dependence upon coal mining and despite the urban development inspired by its proximity to Sydney, The Oaks (population: 2335) has essentially remained an attractive semi-rural district.

      The area was inhabited by the Tharawal Aborigines prior to colonisation. However, owing to fiercely contested wars between the Tharawal and the Europeans, particularly between 1812 and 1816 (culminating in a massacre at Cataract Gorge), and the devastating introduction of European diseases, the Gundungorra people moved into the area around The Oaks. Members of both tribes subsequently worked for the Europeans into the 1920s when they were placed on reserves and their children forcibly removed until the practice ceased in the 1960s.

    • Ref:The Cobar Herald (NSW : 1899 - 1914) Friday 13 December 1907

      "On Monday morning early word was brought into town to the effect that a man named William Lord died suddenly at the Rookery Station. Const. McClintock, who is getting an unenviable lot of this work to do of late, was despatched to the scene. It appears that Lord, who was well known in Cobar, Shuttleton and Illewong, has been suffering for some time, and the circumstances surrounding the case were such that the P.M. dispensed with an inquest. He was about 55 years of age"
