Live in Campbelltown City

Located less than an hour from the Sydney CBD, yet with all the benefits of city living, the City of Campbelltown offers residents the best of both worlds – access to high quality living, facilities and services, surrounded by spectacular scenic hills, nature reserves and the Georges and Nepean Rivers.

Covering more than 312 square kilometres, Campbelltown offers a unique combination of city opportunities in a natural setting to its 166,000 residents – there truly is something for everyone.

With the Campbelltown/Macarthur region anticipated to grow to more than half a million people in the next 15 to 20 years, and as one of only three Strategic Centres outside the Sydney and Parramatta CBDs, there is a major focus in Campbelltown on expanding employment opportunities, services and transport connections for the city into the future.

High quality facilities

Campbelltown City boasts a range of established and ever-expanding facilities that deliver high standards of amenity for our community including:

  • Campbelltown Public Hospital (currently undergoing a major upgrade) and Campbelltown Private Hospital
  • Campbelltown Sports Stadium
  • Western Sydney University, incorporating the School of Medicine and a new Clinical School
  • Macarthur Square regional shopping centre (currently undergoing a major expansion)
  • Campbelltown TAFE
  • The Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan
  • Campbelltown Arts Centre
  • Georges River open space corridor
  • Dharawal National Park
  • Extensive sporting and recreation fields and facilities
  • A wide range of schools – with a mix of private, public and selective institutions.


Campbelltown is more than just an affordable option for people looking to build or buy a home. There is a wide range of housing options from city-living apartments, suburban blocks to acreage living. What they all have in common is much higher levels of amenity and accessibility to a wide range of facilities and services.

Campbelltown has enormous connectivity, with direct road and rail links to Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne. In fact, the city is just 45km from the Sydney CBD and less than 30 minutes from Sydney International Airport.

Campbelltown - the ideal place to call home

Although there is value in relatively fast commuting times to the Sydney CBD, we see the advantage in attracting people to come to Campbelltown to live and work. As your local council, we are working with the community to create a city that is self-sustaining – where residents are less dependent on leaving Campbelltown to travel elsewhere for jobs, services and facilities.

Campbelltown has immense capacity to grow more houses, apartments, population, employment, facilities, and overall quality of life for people who choose to live and invest in Campbelltown.

This combination of relaxing lifestyle, a diverse blend of culture and unique attractions makes Campbelltown the ideal place to call home.

Come and experience the real Campbelltown for yourself.
