Current and upcoming works

Sportsfields precinct

A new sportsfields precinct is set to include two playing fields, pedestrian and cycle pathways, multi-use courts and a play area. Completion is expected in 2024.

Lake Thomson

A special feature of Macarthur Heights will be the Lake Thomson precinct. The lake and surrounding landscaped areas, including space for picnics, three BBQ areas, and play equipment, will be a relaxing space for everyone to enjoy. Works are anticipated to be completed in 2024.

Macarthur Regional Recreational Trail

The Macarthur Recreational Trail will pass through Macarthur Heights as part of a 14-kilometre nature trail which will provide a walking and cycling link to Campbelltown Station and the Australian Botanic Garden at Mount Annan. We have completed most sections of the trail, except for the connection under the Hume Highway, and the section within the sportsfields precinct. The remaining section will be completed as part of the sportsfields precinct.

Bush regeneration

The five riparian corridors that run through Macarthur Heights are being regenerated for the enjoyment of residents. We anticipate that regeneration works will start in early 2024 and will include:

  • removal of weeds and rubbish
  • introduction of new native plants
  • construction of pedestrian and cycling paths to better connect the neighbourhood.
Free fitness classes with Live Life Get Active

As a way to improve community health and wellbeing, we have partnered with Live Life Get Active, who offer free 45-minute fitness classes to Macarthur Heights residents, including cross-training, boxing and yoga.

Classes run five days per week during school terms, starting at 6.30am at Main Ridge Park.

Visit the Live Life Get Active website and search for ‘Macarthur Heights’ under the Locations tab to sign up for a free class. Registrants will also receive a free tailored nutritional plan and access to free online content, videos and live streaming of fitness and health and wellbeing initiatives.

The project

At Macarthur Heights, Landcom has partnered with Western Sydney University to create a new, vibrant urban community for southwest Sydney, offering residents a lifestyle close to education, employment and recreation opportunities.

Featuring 966 lots of varying sizes and at a range of price-points, Macarthur Heights has provided an opportunity for households of all sizes and incomes to build their own home, with sales concluding in 2022.

Surrounded by 42 hectares of beautiful green parklands offering spectacular views of Campbelltown, Macquarie Heights provides residents with sought-after access to a range of green spaces.

With links to Macarthur Station, Macarthur Square, the Western Sydney University campus, Campbelltown TAFE and The Australian Botanic Gardens, as well as easy access to the M5 Motorway and Hume Highway, Macarthur Heights is a highly connected community.

The project is a strong example of Landcom’s commitment to partnering with private landowners to boost the supply of new housing and create great places to live.

Landcom transfers maintenance responsibilities to Council when each stage of the development is complete. Currently, Mainridge Park and Claremont Park have been completed and handed over to Council for ongoing maintenance. Landcom is still delivering Lake Thomson, the Sportsfields Precinct, an amenities building and the bushland regeneration areas, so remains responsible for the maintenance of these areas, as well as some verges throughout Macarthur Heights. We will progressively hand these over to Council as they are completed.
