Intriguing pockets of nature and history among charming shops and the famous Mermaid Pools

Tahmoor is one of Wollondilly’s largest towns and despite its modernity, there are intriguing pockets of history and nature, including hidden gems like the oldest house in the Shire, Tahmoor House (now privately owned).
