Nestled in the heart of the Hawkesbury region, Oakville exudes a unique blend of tranquillity and promise, and is a suburb poised for a new chapter in its storied history.
Let’s take a closer look at what makes Oakville an enticing prospect for those seeking a vibrant community to call home.
A glimpse into the past
According to records from a local Hawkesbury paper, Oakville was the name of the selection taken up by John Clark in 1894 near the Oakville of today. Clark built a four-room cottage and fenced and improved the land. The selection straddled a valley known as Oak Hollow because of the number of She Oaks (Casuarinas) which grew along the creek. Clark named his property Oakville and the district around it soon became known by the same name.
Over the years, it has evolved into a close-knit community that cherishes its heritage while embracing modernity. This suburb, bordering McGrath’s Hill, Vineyard, Box Hill, and Gables, stands as a testament to the enduring spirit of the region.
A tapestry of families and potential
What sets Oakville apart is its predominantly family-oriented demographic. Many households here are filled with the laughter and vitality of children, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. This dynamic makes Oakville an ideal setting for those looking to raise a family, offering a supportive environment that fosters growth and camaraderie.
According to the 2021 ABS census, Oakville has a total population of 2,027 and 645 dwellings. Around 27% of residents are aged 25 to 49 years old and are likely to be part of a couple with children (45% of households) or a couple with no children (28%). They are likely to work in construction (20%), retail (10%) or manufacturing (8.5%).
Located just 20 kilometres from the buzz of Norwest Business Park and a 49 kilometres north-west of Sydney’s central business district, Oakville strikes a balance between accessibility and serene living. Its proximity to key urban centres ensures that residents can enjoy the best of both worlds – the tranquillity of Oakville and the vibrant opportunities that Greater Western Sydney has to offer.
For shoppers, both the Carmel Village Shopping Centre is within easy reach, while the lively Rouse Hill Town Centre is just a short 15-minute drive. The upcoming Box Hill City Centre is another exciting addition to the shopping scene.
For families with school-aged children, Oakville is home to two schools – Oakville Public School for K-6 and the independent co-educational Arndell Anglican College for K-12. If these immediate local schools don’t suit, choose from a myriad of other top quality schools for all ages within the area.
