Colyton is a suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia 43 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the City of Penrith. It is part of the Greater Western Sydney region.
Colyton is the easternmost suburb of the City of Penrith. Its boundaries are Ropes Creek, the Great Western Highway, Marsden Road and the M4 Western Motorway. Colyton is one of the older suburbs in the St Marys area with homes on large blocks of land – primarily 1/4 acre and 1/3 acre blocks. Colyton is primarily a residential area with large sporting fields, Bennett Road Primary School, Colyton High School, Colyton Shopping Centre and the Life Education Centre. There is some industrial activity along Roper Road. Note that Colyton Primary School is not located in Colyton, but across the Great Western Highway in Old Mt Druitt.
Colyton has convenient access to both the Great Western Highway and the M4 Western Motorway. Bus services are provided by Busways to St Marys railway station, Westfield Mount Druitt and Mount Druitt railway station.
Colyton is named after Colyton in Devon, England, which had been the home town of the wife of William Cox Junior, son of the famous builder of the road across the Blue Mountains, also named William. The property of 800 acres had been granted to Cox on 17 August 1819 by Governor Macquarie. It was located on the southern side of the Western Highway opposite the present Colyton Primary School. The land was only used for grazing and wheat growing. On 9 April 1842, a notice appeared in the Sydney Herald advertising the auction sale of William Cox’s estate to form the ‘Village of Colyton’ with surrounding farmlets. The land was described as partly forest and partly alluvial with grass on it being ‘abundant and nutritious’. The timber on the land was described as being fit for ‘building and farming purposes’ and the water ‘abundant and never failing’ from nearby Ropes Creek.
Historically, the name Colyton generally referred to the area east of Ropes Creek. The present site of Colyton was originally part of St Marys.
Colyton Post Office opened on 15 October 1892 and closed in 1962.
