Dillwynia Women's Correctional Centre is an Australian women's prison located in Berkshire Park, New South Wales, Australia.

Dillwynia Women's Correctional Centre is a medium security gaol which houses 260 female inmates. Prisoners wear green and maroon uniforms. There was a Gloria Jeans Coffee shop in the visiting area, which visitors could buy refreshments from, but which is bounded by a line on the floor a metre or two from the counter, which inmates were not allowed to cross. It has since closed. Some of the inmates work rehabilitating old race greyhounds. There is also a wildlife centre behind the gaol which inmates work at also.
