Londonderry is a suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. It is 60 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the City of Penrith and is part of the Greater Western Sydney region.
Londonderry takes its name from the 1831 grant of 30 acres (120,000 m2) to Thomas Kendall.
Its Post Office opened on 1 February 1935.
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.
