Narellan is part of Camden council and is 10 km from Campbelltown CBD. The suburb was a farmland for around 200 years until the area now known as Camden was cleared in 1805. Between 1810 and 1818, lands were granted to settlers, turning the suburb into housing blocks. The modern suburb now consists of separate houses and medium- to high-density residential buildings, making Narellan an inviting suburb for established and growing families, as well as young professionals.
With schools located within and in nearby suburbs, including Narellan Public School, Narellan Vale Public School, and Elizabeth Macarthur High School, it’s a great choice for families with young children. It also has a public library.
Driving 10 minutes from Narellan, you can conveniently reach the Macarthur Square shopping centre in Gilchrist Drive, Campbelltown. However, with the Narellan Town Centre offering about 100 stores, a modern food court, and an 8-screen cinema complex, you’ll find most of what you need for shopping and leisure without leaving the suburb.
Local buses run regular routes around the Narellan area from major suburbs, including Campbelltown, Camden and Picton. There are two drop-off and pick-up points near the town centre for bus passengers: 1) Somerset Avenue (near Woolworths entrance); and 2) Elyard Street (near United Cinemas and Food Court).
With an easy access to Camden Valley Way, and M5 and M7 via the Hume Motorway, many of the residents drive to work.
Narellan is only over an hour’s drive from Sydney, but maintains the space and welcoming vibe of a small town. Overall, it is a safe and peaceful area that is ideal for raising a family.
