​​​Projects at Francis Greenway
Correctional Complex

As part of its commitment to Better Prisons, the NSW Government is upgrading the Francis Greenway Correctional Complex to provide additional accommodation for female inmates and improve facilities for male inmates on remand.

Turning the first sod outside the Geoffry Pearce Correctional Centre, part of the Francis Greenway complex.

The Francis Greenway complex, located in Berkshire Park near Windsor, is made up of three separate correctional centres:

  • John Morony, a medium-security facility for remand and sentenced male inmates
  • Dillwynia, which provides both minimum- and medium-security accommodation for women
  • Geoffrey Pearce (formerly Outer Metropolitan Multi Purpose), a minimum and medium-security facility for men that provides drug rehabilitation and employment opportunities.

Formerly John Morony Correctional Complex, the facility was renamed in April 2020 after Francis Greenway, an English-born convict who came to Australia in 1814 and went on to become Australia’s first government architect. The complex is also home to a number of Corrective Services support services and a wildlife rehabilitation centre.

Both Dillwynia and Geoffrey Pearce are being upgraded as part of the current works.
