We’re lucky in Campbelltown to live in an area with pristine bushland, unspoilt waterways and prolific wildlife – all within a stone’s throw of our urban centres.

The Georges and Nepean Rivers, which help to naturally define our local area, also provide limitless opportunity for getting outdoors and connecting with nature, whether it’s quietly bird-watching or spotting platypus by the creek, ripping down some serious mountain biking trails, or set-your-own-pace activities like swimming, trekking and fishing - it’s all right here in our collective backyard.

So whether you’re into rough and rugged or loungy and lazy, why not check out one of Campbelltown’s natural treasures?
