Community support services and resources

Campbelltown is a place where Aboriginal people from Country all over Australia have joined together as one community.

Despite coming from different mobs, having different stories, and different connections to Country, the Aboriginal community of Campbelltown is one guided by a deep respect for history and traditional ownership of the land.

Together they are creating a new shared culture of contemporary Campbelltown - on that honours the past and its people whilst looking towards the future.
