Campbelltown City Council has released a new Campbelltown Experience Guide, which details the extensive range of attractions, events, dining options and activities on offer across the area less than an hour from Sydney’s CBD.
The 64-page guidebook outlines Campbelltown’s natural attractions, including Dharawal National Park, the Georges River and the Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan – which at 416 hectares is Australia’s largest botanic garden, with more than 2,500 species of native plants on display.
Activities such as hot-air ballooning, go-karting, laser skirmish, golfing, mountain biking and horse riding are also featured in the guidebook, as are the city’s cultural spots, such as the Campbelltown Arts Centre. The guide also provides information on shopping experiences in the area, local wineries and craft breweries, popular eateries and the various special events held throughout the year, including the annual Fishers’ Ghost Festival.
One section focuses on the city’s colonial history and the attractions which enable visitors to get a taste of early colonial life, including the Campbelltown Heritage Precinct, Dredge’s Cottage and Glenalvon House – a two-storey sandstone Georgian townhouse dating back to 1840.
The Campbelltown Experience Guide is aimed at promoting the city as a rural, historical and cultural getaway, conveniently located less than an hour from Sydney’s CBD.
