Campbelltown is full of historical charm and fun things to do for the outdoorsy but a beach isn’t something you’d expect to find in the southwestern suburb of Sydney. But thanks to Campbelltown’s Billabong Parklands Project, things are about to change in a big way. The long-awaited water recreation attraction, which has been in the works for the last three years is set to open soon complete with a stream, swimming lagoon and a zero-depth play area. Plus expect sprawling event spaces, lush lawn areas and much more in this game-changing project. The facility is tentatively expected to open in March 2024.
Campbelltown’s Billabong Parklands Project
The 4-hectare site will transform Campbelltown into a vibrant, thriving part of Sydney and the place to be if you’re looking to cool down on a hot day. Located at the corner of The Parkway and Moore-Oxley Bypass, the space has been designed for all age groups to enjoy and includes a number of amenities including picnic spots and interactive water play areas. The design draws inspiration from the nearby Dharawal National Park and Georges River and will include the following elements:
- A series of rock pools with streams channeling the nearby Dharawal National Park’s waterfalls and rock pools
- A 2-meter deep lagoon
- Zero-depth water play area with interactive water elements and activities for kids
The swimming precinct will also feature a number of open spaces, ample tree cover and native tree plantings as an ode to Campbelltown’s Indigenous culture.
The multi-million dollar endeavour is finally set to swing open its doors this autumn, keep an eye on their website for updates.
