Who we are and what we do...
Hills is the local name given to a vast tract of gently rolling hills and
valleys that cradle the city of Campbellown and provide its scenic backdrop. Running from Denham Court in the north to the Australian Botanic Garden at Mount Annan in the south and beyond, the Hills are rich in aboriginal and European colonial history, and one of the last remaining colonial rural landscapes left in the Cowpastures area. In 1974
Campbelltown City Council officially moved to protect the area for future
generations by zoning it Environmental Protection - Scenic. However, because of its location -
45 minutes from Sydney’s CBD and 45 minutes from the Southern Highlands - the
Hills have suffered ongoing encroachment from Sydney’s growing population.
Hills Association was formed on 17 March 2010 when it became clear that the
Hills’ zoning would not be enough to ensure its survival. At its core is a group of residents and landowners who live in or near
the Scenic Hills, principally in the suburbs of Varroville and St Andrews but with “Friends” now extending
across the Campbelltown area and as far north as Queensland. Read More.
