Outer South West Sydney Region Highlights & Essential Things To Do
Discover Your Local Outer South West Sydney Area
If you've found yourself laughing over beers with people you met only an hour ago at the pub, you can be certain you're somewhere in South West Sydney. Heritage buildings and blossoming botanical gardens ensure the ghosts of the 19th century middle-class still float along the streets. Yet, compared to the working-class character of the district today, the differences between South West Sydney's past and present blend together in an interesting and comfortable way.
Wondering what's on in Campbelltown? Dive into its fierce sporting culture by joining the locals down at Campbelltown Stadium for one of the Magpies or Wests Tigers home games. Or, if you're looking for more romantic attractions, head to nearby Camden where lovebirds can fly above the rolling hills and farmland surrounding the Macarthur region in a hot air balloon. What's more, Camden is the birthplace of the Australian wine industry. To the south, Picton is a well-seasoned town known for its ghost tours and the historic George IV Inn, a colonial inn that was one of the first microbreweries in the country that still offers food, accomodation, and, of course, local beers. Enjoy a little bit of village life and have a pint of the award-winning Scharer's Lager.
If you're a member of a family with young ones, there are plenty of things to do at Wattle Grove, from long walks to community events on the weekends. Tree-lined footpaths are a perfect way to appreciate the fresh air, while the annual Christmas and Easter activities keep the kids entertained. Otherwise, head to the Australian Botanic Gardens for a picnic on the soft grass, following a stroll around the duck ponds and colourful native gardens that boast one of the largest collections of Australian flora in the country.
The southwest region of Sydney is full of surprises, both with its fascinating historical narrative and updated, tight-knit communities. The locals know how remarkable the area is and, luckily, they'll welcome you with open arms.
