Rogans Hill is a small district within the suburb of Castle Hill in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia within Hornsby Shire, and was named after John Rogan, a pioneer who had been given a grant of land in the area by Governor Macquarie in 1818.[1] Its main attractions include The Hermitage, Oakhill College, Oakhill Drive Public School and the Anglican Retirement Villages. It was the destination of a railway line (the Rogans Hill line) which closed in 1932.[2]

Rogans Hill is also sometimes referred to as Oakhill.
