Liverpool was founded as a centre of agriculture by Governor Lachlan Macquarie in 1810 but wasn’t declared a city until 1960. These days, it boasts a multicultural population of more than 20,000 and a reputation for well-preserved heritage and the arts. Liverpool’s main shopping district is the Macquarie Mall, which features a Westfield shopping centre and cinema, while restaurants and more shops can be found along the nearby streets along with Liverpool Library.

If you feel like cooling off or getting some exercise, the Whitlam Leisure Centre is an indoor aquatics and fitness centre with five swimming pools and an indoor stadium for events and functions.
