Review of Campbelltown’s Bushwalking Trails


The Campbelltown Local Government Area (LGA) is situated in the Sydney Basin Bioregion which is one of the most species-diverse regions in NSW. It covers an area of approximately 33,130 hectares and incorporates parts of the Georges and Hawkesbury-Nepean River catchments.

This trails project included the following tasks:

  • Mapping of all bushwalking tracks at key Council reserves/identified recreational locations
  • Distinguish between types of tracks (i.e. fire trails, walking tracks, mountain bike trails)
  • Prepare a comprehensive database of tracks
  • Recommend locations for the creation of new paths together with its associated main attraction/purpose
  • Identify locations for complementary opportunities for tourism (e.g. lookouts, orienteering, mountain biking, zip lining, high ropes course, bird watching, kayaking/paddle boarding/river access, camping/glamping)
  • Identify need and locations for potential facilities (e.g. public toilets, picnic tables, BBQ facilities)
  • Create an interactive mapping layer of walking tracks that can be used on Council’s website and in promotional material
