History

The area now known as Bickley Vale was originally home to the Gandangara people of the Southern Highlands although the Muringong, southernmost of the Darug people, were also known to inhabit the area. In 1805, wool pioneer John Macarthur was granted 5,000 acres (20 km²) at Cowpastures (now Camden). The name was taken from the name of a property located within the suburb. Bickley Vale is still primarily a rural locality.
