Campbelltown City has one of the largest urban populations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in New South Wales.
Connection to people
We have a vibrant and diverse Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, with over 7,000 residents who identify as being Aboriginal and/ or Torres Strait Islander. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people usually identify by their family nation or nations of origin. In Campbelltown we have residents from the lands of the Wiradjuri, Gamileroi (Kamilaroi), Yorta Yorta, Gumbainggyr, Yuin, Ngunawal, Worimi and many other nations across Australia.
Have a look at the Aboriginal Australia map and see if you can find these places.
While the community is diverse, our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people strongly share common values of respect, family and community, using these to work together in order to maintain culture and build on community strength.
Together they are creating a new shared culture of contemporary Campbelltown - one that honours the past and its people whilst looking towards the future. It is the way that the community embraces this diversity that makes the Aboriginal community of Campbelltown so unique.
