Greystanes is a suburb in Greater Western Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Greystanes is located 25 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district in the local government area of Cumberland Council. Founded in the late 1790s, Greystanes is one of the oldest suburbs in Sydney.
In the early years of British settlement the area was known as Prospect Hill and was the site of the first land grants to emancipated convicts in 1791. From 1800 to 1840, the division of Darug lands into ‘Crown Land Grants’ was awarded to officials, military, free settlers and emancipists to farm. In this period, it was one of several areas of conflict between the Darug people and the settlers, the Darug people being led for many years of guerrilla warfare by Pemulwuy.
Greystanes began as a rural suburb in the 1850s and remained so until the 1880s. The suburb was occupied mainly by large estates designed as rural retreats for gentlemen farmers, including Charles Whalan and Nelson Lawson. The area became differentiated into Prospect to the west of Greystanes Creek, and Greystanes to the east of the Creek.
The name ‘Grey Stanes’, given by Nelson Lawson, came from the outcrops of basalt on Prospect Hill, “Grey” being its colour and “Stanes” being the Scottish word for stones. The land was originally granted to William Cummings in 1799, before being acquired by the famed Blue Mountains explorer William Lawson in approximately 1810.
In 1836, ‘Greystanes House’ was built by Nelson Simmons Lawson, third child of William Lawson, on land given to him by his father, on the eastern side of Prospect Hill. In 1942, Greystanes House was resumed for military use for World War 2. The grand mansion was demolished in 1946, but its gates still remain intact on Greystanes Road.
In 1880, the Upper Nepean Scheme commenced to provide Sydney with a reliable water supply. Vast areas of land were resumed for the project including William Lawson’s estate. The army of labourers involved in the construction phases camped in a virtual ‘tent city’ at near Hyland Road. The Prospect and Potts Hill Reservoirs, Boothtown Aqueduct and Lower Prospect Canal Reserve were completed in 1888.
Greystanes was officially recognised as a suburb in 1922.
The Greystanes area was used for poultry farming throughout the twentieth century. Frank Cefai, a Maltese migrant, was a well known developer who built thousands of residential homes and infrastructure throughout Greystanes and its surrounding suburbs. In 1973, Frank was the main contribution to the record year of development applications at Holroyd Council for Greystanes and its surrounding suburbs.
In the early 1950s, the Maltese community, in particular Father Camilleri, raised donations to help Wenthworthville parish purchase the land from a poultry farmer, upon the highest hill of Greystanes to build a new Catholic church, school and parish. Frank Cefai began the construction of St Simon Stock Catholic Church. Dams were filled in and poultry sheds were knocked down. The original St Simon Stock Catholic Church is located where the current science block of St Paul’s Catholic High School is. This church was also used as the classrooms for the St Simon Stock Primary and High School.
The St Simon Stock primary school was completed in 1958 and its all boys high school in 1962. As well as parish buildings and a nuns convent. Frank Cefai built and helped fund the Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church and these surrounding primary and secondary schools and parish buildings. In 1975, Frank Cefai completed the construction of Our Lady Queen of Peace church.
Between 29 December 1952 and 09 January 1953, more than 11,000 scouts converged on Greystanes to attend the Pan Pacific Scout Jamboree. Back then, this was the biggest gathering of its kind in Australia, with attendees coming from all Australian states plus 16 other countries, including New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Papua New Guinea, to participate in a full camp program.
Almost 8,000 visitors watched the opening parade where the campers marched past the Governor and Chief Scout of NSW, Sir John Northcott, while bearing flags from their home nations. A makeshift canvas city of tents was erected on the site which also housed a temporary post office, newsagent, four bank branches, hospital facilities and several canteens.
John Frederick Colquhoun represented The Boy Scouts Association Imperial Headquarters and its Chief Scout of the British Commonwealth and Empire.
The Greystanes area was dubbed “Little Malta” by the Sydney Sun newspaper due to the influx of Maltese migrants since the 1910s who had settled in the area and taken up poultry farming or market gardening. By 1932, 30% of the produce sold at the Sydney fruit and vegetable markets was supplied by Maltese market gardeners. Gozo Road, Greystanes is named after Gozo – the second largest Island in Malta. Thus, giving recognition to the Maltese influence in Greystanes.
Many of the Maltese operated poultry and pig farms. Some of these businesses from Greystanes and surrounds, have become household names throughout Australia and are still in operation. Baiada Chickens and Cordina Farms, are two of the biggest commercial success stories to emerge from the local Maltese community. Others include Zammit Smallgoods and Fresh Farm Eggs.
The Maltese Club, previously owned by the Catholic Church, was located on the current site of Genista Aged Care Facility at 185 Old Prospect Road. The former corner shop across the road from the Catholic church, was one of many Maltese stores in the area, which sold pastizzi, kinnie and ravioli. There was also The Maltese Herald newspaper, which was published from 1961 to 2013. The Maltese Herald’s office was situated in nearby Merrylands.
Greystanes still has a large Maltese Australian community, which can still be seen today. The Maltese began a strong culture of Christmas lights and nativity sets in Greystanes, starting officially in Darling Street (no longer participates), then Camellia Street (no longer participates) and now Cumberland Road (still active). There are still stand-out displays annually, every December throughout Greystanes.
In 1965, the fourth centenary of the Great Siege of Malta, the statue of Our Lady of Victories (il-Bambina – a patron saint of Malta) arrived in Greystanes to the great joy of the Maltese; not only from the immediate area, but also from many other parts of Sydney. She is the centrepiece of the Greystanes Catholic Community and Our Lady Queen of Peace church, and is the centrepiece of the annual Maltese Festa procession. She is a beautifully hand crafted statue from Bolzano, Italy; a replica of il-Bambina from Gozo, commissioned and funded by the Greystanes Maltese Community.
Il-Vitorja or Victory Day, is a public holiday celebrated in Malta, which also coincides with the commemoration of the birth of the Virgin Mary (il-Bambina). Hereby giving the traditional name to this statue.
The first procession in honour of Our Lady in the parish was held in 1962, under the title of Our Lady of Lourdes. However, since the arrival of the statue, the Maltese community have celebrated an annual Festa (il-Vitorja & il-Bambina) every October since 1965, in and around the Catholic Church (as every village in Malta traditionally does).
Our Lady Queen of Peace church and parish was intended to be named and dedicated to Our Lady of Victories, in honour of the aforementioned statue. However, despite hundreds of years of tradition surrounding this statue, the clergy of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Parramatta deemed it incorrect to have the moniker Victories attached to Our Lady. The church and parish were to be known as Our Lady Queen of Peace, when Frank Cefai finished construction in 1975. The statue of Our Lady of Victories is on display inside Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church. She is carried by hand, traditionally, at the annual procession of the OLQP Maltese Festa.

Many Small neighbourhood parks are scattered around the suburb.
One prominent park is the Canal Road Park, which is 70 metres above sea level and thus features a panoramic lookout of southwest Sydney. Originally it was a water canal once used to transport water from the Prospect Reservoir, but has since been decommissioned and converted into a cycle and walkway. Despite this, it is still referred to by its original function. The Canal features the regionally well-known Boothtown Aqueduct (as its original function was) located on Macquarie Rd, Greystanes.
The south-west of Greystanes contains the Gipps Road Sporting Complex and the Rosford Street Reserve, which consist of multiple ovals suitable for sports such as football and cricket.
