The region presently referred to as Camden originally belonged to an indigenous group of people known as the Gandangara people. However, the arrival of European explorers led to conflicts which saw the death of many of the community’s members. Years later, part of the land was given to John Macarthur (the man after whom the region is named). Macarthur established several industries that saw the development of the area and a subsequent increase in population.

Today, Camden makes for an attractive destination and this charming town is the perfect way to explore rural Sydney. Visit Belgenny Farm located within Camden Park Estate for the tour of a lifetime. The farm, which started back in 1805, provides walking tours if its grand buildings which have stood the test of time. Take a relaxed stroll across the lush colonial garden on location.

Depending on the time of your visit, you may explore Camden Park House, an 1835 Palladian-style grand house. The mansion is open to the public once each year on a select weekend in September. Combine this with a tour of the Camden Museum which brings you up close with the colonial past and Aboriginal culture.

Nature lovers will especially enjoy walks in the Macarthur Park, with the background of beautiful rose gardens and wisteria walks. Wind up a day in the outdoors with a fun golf session at Camden Golf Club.

There is no better way to enjoy local produce than to visit the famous Cobbitty Winery or to shop at the Camden Fresh Produce Market, held each Saturday. The beauty about this is that you can be sure of fresh quality farm produce.

It is impossible to talk about Camden without mentioning the iconic Camden Show that provides plenty of entertainment for the whole family. Look out for other fun events and festivals held in the town for a memorable adventure.
