Its Post Office opened on 1 February 1935.

Geography

Londonderry is located in the northernmost part of the City of Penrith with the Driftway forming the boundary with the Hawkesbury City Council area. The Northern Road divides Londonderry from Berkshire Park while Cranebrook and Agnes Banks are its boundaries on its southern and western sides. Londonderry is a rural area and much of it still crown land. Because of its closeness to Richmond and distance from Penrith, the suburb has always had stronger links with Richmond than with Penrith.
