History



Campbelltown has attracted people from all over the world

Explore the history of our city since settlement, learn about our Aboriginal history, find out the history of your suburb and read about prominent people in our city's past. Told through oral, written and visualised ways, Campbelltown’s communities’ aspirations and struggles are unique to this place. They form an important part of the way to understand the region and define Campbelltown having The Good Life.

Campbelltown Library's local studies collection also contains historic and contemporary materials covering life in the local government area.
