Dharug people were traditional owners of the area that became Studley Park, but it was granted to various settlers by Governor Macquarie in the 1810s. It changed hands many times in the nineteenth century, and one owner, William Payne, built a grand house called Studley Park House. It was later used as a school, army school and golf club. The stables are now the Camden Golf Club, and much of the property is the golf course.
