The village was first surveyed in 1853 and when gold was discovered 30 years later, the population soared.

One of the first explorers to the area was Charles Throsby who wandered through the Sutton area in 1920 looking for the Murrumbidgee River.

Traditionally the Sutton area has been dependent on horses, cattle and sheep. However, in recent years the region has become home to alpaca and deer farms, wineries and olive groves.

Sutton is an attractive destination for the day tripper based in the nation’s capital, while its close proximity to Canberra has made it a popular choice for those looking to relocate.
