Arcadia

Far northern semi-rural suburb. Its peaceful nature has led churches to establish retreats in the area, including a Benedictine monastery and the Wesley Central Mission complex at Vision Valley.

Originally Dharug country, Arcadia was named in 1894. Timber-getting in the tall forests gave way to citrus orchards by the late nineteenth century, and the area remains semi-rural.
