Macarthur Region - Cities, Towns and Localities

• Picton
• Wollondilly
 
The Macarthur Region is just 40 minutes drive south west of Sydney, situated on the Georges River and Upper Nepean Water Catchment and spans some 3,067 square kilometres. The Georges and Nepean Rivers flows through a region that provide visitors with great natural escarpments of gorges, ranges and plains, flora, fauna, trails and walking tracks.

By taking the opportunity to enjoy the guided bushwalking tours, will bring the visitor face-to-face with a culture that spans over 40,000 years old. It is here that the original indigenous people, the Tharawal, left their mark in the from of cave paintings, rock engravings, axe grinding grooves and shell middens.

After European settlement at Sydney Cove in 1788, the colony’s entire herd of cattle of four cows and two bulls, strayed from their enclosure and were deemed lost. Then in 1795, in the region between the Nepean and Georges Rivers, a herd of 61 cattle were discovered. This region was to become known as the ‘Cowpastures’ and became a restricted area to provide ongoing protection for the herd.

In 1803 John Macarthur was granted 5,000 acres at ‘Cowpastures’ from where he began grazing Merino sheep, and from whence the region became known as the Macarthur Region.

Encompassing the Local Government Areas of Campbelltown, Camden and Wollondilly, the beautiful Macarthur region combines modern cosmopolitan city life in Campbelltown to  historic towns such as Camden. In this rural country region, you can enjoy a leisurely pace whilst taking in the heritage that is evident in the rich array of colonial architecture. Then enjoy something more adventurous such as hot air ballooning, sky-diving, go-karting, horse riding, and much more.

For those seeking back to nature activities, their are a number of nature reserves and bushwalks that take in rock escarpments, rivers and breath taking views.
