Campbelltown Billabong Parklands Survey

Submission closed on 27 September 2019

Everyone is invited to get involved with the next phase of design for Campbelltown’s exciting new Billabong Parklands project at Apex Park, Bradbury.


The $18.75 million regional water recreation space will be built at Apex Park, Bradbury – the southern gateway to the city centre.

It will be a place where people can socialise and relax, enjoy activities like exercise and art classes, attend events, run educational programs, have a birthday party or simply enjoy a picnic with friends.

Project timeframes

  • Construction commencement: mid-2020
  • Forecast project completion: June 2022

Design principles

The underlying design principles of the billabong are to create a water recreation space that honours the area’s Aboriginal cultural heritage, is inspired by local rivers in the Dharawal National Park and is a welcoming and attractive place for people to visit, relax and enjoy all year round.

The concept plan for the unique tourist attraction includes a series of rock pools with streams between a swimming lagoon and zero-depth water play area, connected by a meandering stream across the 4Ha site beside Bradbury Oval.

We are now refining the design and need your input to ensure that this is a place that meets your needs as a recreational and cultural open space.

Community consultation

We hosted a family fun event, on Saturday 14 September at Apex Park, Bradbury to help residents talk to Council staff about the project. Thank you for sharing your ideas about the park to be included in the final design. It was great to see families enjoying the water play activities including water walkers, paddle boats and our sausage sizzle.

Have your say

Submissions have now closed.

Thanks to everyone who provided feedback in our Billabong Parklands project survey. These ideas will be used to develop the final design which we will share with you early 2020.

The project is being funded by the Western Sydney City Deals, Western Parkland City Liveability Program that includes $3.75 million contribution from Council.
