Campbelltown Billabong Parklands Are Officially Open!

  • All Ages

Bondi, Manly... Campbelltown? That's right; the greater west is now home to a brand new 'beach' thanks to the Campbelltown Billabong Parklands Project.

There have been murmurings of a "Campbelltown Beach" and "Campbelltown Lagoon" for years and we're happy to report that the new outdoor precinct in Campbelltown is officially open - hoorah!

Campbelltown Billabong Parklands Are Officially Open!

The Campbelltown Billabong Parklands Project has been deemed a water wonderland oasis and was started in June 2020 with an expected completion date of 8 June 2024.

According to Campbelltown Mayor George Brticevic, the unique water attraction is building on the city’s campaign for Sydneysiders to ‘re-imagine’ Campbelltown as a vibrant, thriving destination and shed all negative perceptions.

The proposed central 'lagoon' design draws inspiration from other similar lagoon designs in Queensland, including Yeppoon Foreshore & Lagoon, and Orion Lagoon in Springfield.

The hero of the Parklands is the 16,000-square-metre Billabong swimming pool, which will feature:

  • Rockpools with streams (inspired by the rapids, waterfalls and rock pools of the Dharawal National Park)
  • a 2.5-metre-deep lagoon
  • zero-depth water play area with a range of interactive water elements.

  • water play
  • expansive lawn areas
  • pavilions with change facilities and a cafe
  • picnic areas with seating
  • winding pathways
  • shade structures

typical design, almost completely open area so in summer you cook while playing in the water, meanwhile you car bakes in the sun on the tar car park which could have been solar panel covers across the whole car park which powers the whole park and then some. this is the design of old days, not the future.

Campbelltown is actually only 35 minutes from beautiful south coast beaches of Bulli and Austinmer, it's a scenic drive through beautiful bushland. Much closer to the beach than many other parts of Sydney
