Abbotsbury is a suburb of Sydney, approximately 39 kilometres west of the Sydney CBD in the City of Fairfield. It is part of the Greater Western Sydney region, and is considered to be one of the most affluent suburbs in that area. The majority of the suburbs estates were built in the late 1980s and early 1990s, although a few acres of undeveloped land in the north-west area was subdivided and developed in the early 2010s. The west border of the suburb is divided by a line of pine trees, which give privacy to the homes backing onto the farmlands.
Abbotsbury was named from Major Edward Abbott, a Canadian born soldier who arrived in New South Wales in 1790. Abbott was granted land in what is now Abbotsbury in 1806 although sold it to a William Browne in 1810. The estate remained intact until the late 19th century when it was subdivided into small farms and it remained a rural area until the late 20th century when residential subdivision began. The name for the suburb was approved in 1991.

Amoretti's - Western Sydney is certainly going through a boom at the moment in regards to ............ well everything! There are new suburbs, new parks, wet n wild world, posh hotels, the drive-in at Blacktown and the list goes on. My favourite thing although is the boom in fabulous cafes and restaurants opening up out here in the wild west. My latest find is Amoretti's at Abbotsbury which is located in the awesome Plough and Harrow Park in the Western Sydney Parklands. For all of you inner city dwellers this is where I am talking about click here.
