Lisarow in the early years was a small rural community whose main industry was citrus growing. In 1932 the best of Lisarow's orchards were displayed in the window of the David Jones Sydney store promoting that year's Sydney Royal Easter Show.
"Allambie", the original homestead and Howards Tennis Courts were located on the site where The Orchards stands today.
