St Matthews Anglican Graveyard at Old Oaks contains pioneers from as far back as the First Fleet. The attached church was opened in 1838 to serve the local pioneers and their convict staff.

St Aloysius Catholic Cemetery started in the 1860s and includes some memorials moved from Burragorang Valley when the valley was flooded for Sydney’s water supply.

The Wollondilly Heritage Centre and Museum has six buildings of historical exhibitions plus a well appointed seating area to relax and clean restrooms.St Matthews cemeterySt Aloysius cemetery
