Celebrating 200 Years of Campbelltown in 2020, bicentenary commemorations were launched with cultural performances and the unveiling of the Fringe Lily, a commemorative native plant.
The story of the area stretches far beyond 200 years beginning with the Dharawal people and continuing today with our multicultural and diverse community. Campbelltown is now home to over 6,000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, who contribute to one of the most culturally diverse Councils in Australia.
We enjoyed sharing our history with all our community through a campaign of sharing historic photos, uncovering monuments, landmarks and buildings in the video series Only in Campbelltown and significant events.
Today, Campbelltown is on the cusp of unprecedented growth and development
The reimagining of our CBD is progressing with Council endorsing the Master Plan following significant community engagement. A bold vision to create a sustainable, resilient, prosperous and liveable city which services the broader Macarthur region.
