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. Campbelltown earned the designation as a satellite city in the 1960s and later as a regional capital for South West 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.
The dwellings are a mix of original and renovated 60s houses, and modern townhouses and villas. 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.
Well connected by trains and buses, Campbelltown is the ideal place for people who like being close enough to the city for work but prefer to leave behind the hustle and bustle at the end of the day.
