Climate & Growing Conditions

Rainfall averages around 1086mm per year in the Hills Shire council district with the wettest 3 months being January, February and March when hot and humid conditions create afternoon storms which roll into the area from the Blue Mountains and further west. Temperature extremes range from around 42deg in summer to just above freezing overnight in the dead of winter. Frost around the Hills district is rare but does occur from time to time in certain areas especially around Dural. Rain is more reliable and temperatures slightly more moderate in The Hills compared to Camden, Penrith & Richmond areas. Our landscape architects love creating affordable landscape plans for residents in The Hills Shire.

Select plants from Zone 3 and Zone 4 when designing your garden in The Hills district.
