Less than an hour from the Sydney CBD, the historic Macarthur region is the perfect Australia Day destination for Sydneysiders or those further afield, due to its attractions, eateries, activities and special Australia Day events.

Families can make a day of it as Campbelltown and Camden host family fun events on Saturday, January 26, 2019, including fireworks, carnival rides, jumping castles, free live music, pool inflatables, a waterpark, face painting, petting zoo, koala cupcake making and thong-throwing competitions.

The free event will also include the annual Macarthur Lions Parade from 11.15am.

Campbelltown – The action at Campbelltown’s Koshigaya Park will begin at 2pm, with a kids’ zone - including free face painting, free Aussie craft, a reptile show and whip cracking– running until 6pm.

A carnival with rides and side shows will run throughout the afternoon and evening, and a line-up of local musicians will take the stage, followed by popular Sydney act the Baker Boys Band. The festivities will conclude with a spectacular firework display at 9pm.

Campbelltown’s three public swimming pools will also join in the family fun for the national day, offering half price swim entry, lucky door prizes and giveaways, pool inflatables and jumping castles.
