Campbelltown, located 50 km south-west of the Sydney CBD, is the administrative seat of the City of Campbelltown.
It was founded in 1820 after the establishment of a permanent settlement by Governor John Macquarie. But it was only in 1831 that residents took ownership of town land. Campbelltown earned the designation as a satellite city in the 1960s and later as a regional capital for the south-west of Sydney. A massive building and population growth followed, prompting the government to allocate land near the town for public and private housing and business.
The suburb is an easy commute to the city and offers lots of amenities, including shopping, schools, restaurants, sports facilities, a hospital, parkland, and more.
With the bigger Macarthur Square and the smaller Campbelltown Mall, you’ll have a variety of interesting shopping options. Plus, there are many smaller stores along the Queen Street shopping strip in the old town centre.
The dwellings are a mix of original and renovated 60s houses, and modern townhouses and villas. You will also see apartments as well as large houses that feature several bedrooms and bathrooms. These choices along with the many private and public schools for primary, secondary and tertiary education located within the suburbs make Campbelltown the perfect place for families with growing children.
