Towns & Villages



The village was founded by James Badgery, who was born in the city of Exeter in Devon, England. He arrived in New South Wales in 1799, and by 1812 was operating a farm with the name "Exeter" on the site of the present village.
Exeter today features a local public school, highly regarded general store with a café, post office and a train station on the southern railway line south of Sydney.
Exeter is a sought after location with peace and tranquillity, very English streets and lanes, hedges and gardens of 'Invergowrie', one of the grandest homes in the Highlands and traditional village buildings tastefully positioned amongst the country side.
