The Oaks offers a welcome rest point along a scenic drive through the Shire. Originally called “The Private Village of Vanderville” by the original owner, Emmeline Ann Ausannah Wild, but given the name “The Oaks” in 1810 by George Caley, Government Botanist, after dominant she-oaks and river oaks in the forests. The Wollondilly Heritage Centre has some special treats with audio-visual programs and fascinating displays of the local past, including mining, fruit growing, timber, water and the Burragorang Valley. A self drive tour booklet of the district is also available from the centre
