Food Shortages

The Richmond Windsor area is explored by British settlers and is known by the colonialists as Richmond Hill. Following severe food shortages in the colony, the Hawkesbury River settlements are referred to as the food bowl of Sydney, for they produce much of the colony's fresh vegetables as well as the majority of grain crops in Sydney. The farmers’ clearing the land depletes the food supplies of the Kooris who find themselves driven from their traditional hunting grounds.
