Our city

Campbelltown City is a significant regional centre, offering opportunity and lifestyle. Bounded on one side by the Georges River, and on the other by rolling hills, our area offers the perfect combination of city and country. Campbelltown City continues to develop into a significant regional centre for employment, transport, education, shopping, health and community services.

Located just 50 minutes from the Sydney CBD, 40 minutes from the beaches of Illawarra and within easy reach of major road and rail links to the Southern Highlands, Canberra, the Blue Mountains and the South Coast beaches - Campbelltown offers a unique blend of city opportunities in a natural setting to its 155,000 residents.

Our diversity

We serve a diverse community, which is fairly unique in that we have relatively small percentages of a wide range of nationalities. For example we have people from the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Philippines, Fiji, India, South Africa, Lebanon, China, Germany, Poland and more. Campbelltown also has the second largest aboriginal population in the Sydney region and approximately 11% of the population have a disability.

We value a diverse workforce that aims to be reflective of the community we serve and recognise that a diverse workforce encourages different ideas that will foster improved service delivery to our community.
