Construction on the main pool structure of the Campbelltown Billabong Parklands is nearing completion and work has now started on the landscaping and building features of the $31 million Parklands.

The project’s construction timeline has been updated following the appointment of Landscape Solutions as main landscape and building contractor, with completion expected in Q3 of the 2023/2024 financial year, subject to weather.

Several challenges, including the current pressures and material shortages being experienced across the construction industry, resulted in a complex negotiation phase to appoint a main works contractor which was extended beyond the initial planned timeframe.

 “We understand the community is eager to see construction on the Campbelltown Billabong Parklands complete, however our key focus has to be on ensuring the project is delivered on-budget and to a high standard,” Mayor George Greiss said.

“We’re delighted to have Landscape Solutions on board and construction is now proceeding at a rapid pace on the landscaping and building works,” he said.

“The Billabong represents a fantastic long-term investment in a recreation space that will be a meeting place for locals and a destination for the region. I look forward to a grand opening shortly after construction is complete to welcome the community for the first time.”

The recently completed pool structure includes more than 300,000 individually laid Sukabumi Stone tiles, which bring out a range of vibrant green tones in the water to reflect the natural water features of the Dharawal National Park, on which the design of the Billabong Parklands is based.

An opening event to welcome the community into the spectacular water attraction is being planned for the weeks following construction completion.

Construction is also continuing on the $4 million public parks that will mark the entrances to the Parklands.


The Campbelltown Billabong Parklands is located on a 4ha site at the corner of The Parkway and Moore-Oxley Bypass, Bradbury and is expected to attract up to 500,000 visitors annually once opened.

The centrepiece of the attraction will be the approximately 1600m2 main billabong pool which is interconnected with a smaller children’s pool, cascades and streams and a zero-depth splash play area.

The design of the water bodies and surrounding parklands reflects the natural riverine environment of the nearby Dharawal National Park.

This $31 million project was funded under the Western Parkland City Liveability Program, which is part of the Western Sydney City Deal (WSCD) between the Australian and NSW governments, and the eight local Councils of the Western Parkland City.

A further $4 million is allocated to the adjoining parks as part of the NSW Public Spaces Legacy Program.
