What’s On In March

Hello March!

Summer’s children may be weeping in the slightly cooler autumn breeze, but wise South West Sydneysiders know there’s no reason to despair the coming of March.

That’s right, get ready to farewell those humid summer afternoons and bring on a massive roster of music, festivals, sport and art.

So, while the days are growing shorter, the list of outstanding activities this month for the whole family, is growing ever longer.

Here are our favourite events for the month.

We hope you enjoy them!


When: 6pm– 8pm, Thursday, 5th March 2020
Where: Campbelltown Arts Centre, 1 Art Gallery Road, Campbelltown
Cost: Free

Residents interested in making Campbelltown a more sustainable and resilient City are invited to be inspired by the sector’s leading minds.

Join the team for a second talk in the Thrive series featuring Jock Gammon, Co-founder and Managing Director of Junglefy.

Cities are looking to integrate more natural features into their design, with many aspiring to become “urban jungles” abound with plants and wildlife. Jock, a field-leading expert, will discuss the importance and practicalities of living infrastructure in creating liveable, productive and healthy communities.
Council is working with Junglefy and UTS to install the region’s largest Breathing Wall at Campbelltown Station. This innovative installation will contribute data regarding improvements in air quality and begin Council’s vision of greening the CBD.

The Wall will be made of 160 modules, containing over 1,200 plants.
