Campbelltown

      city within the Sydney metropolitan area, eastern New South Wales, southeastern Australia. In 1810 it was proclaimed the town of Airds by Governor Lachlan Macquarie (Macquarie, Lachlan), who renamed it in 1820 after his wife, Elizabeth Campbell. In 1882 it became a municipality and absorbed the historic villages of Glenfield, Macquarie Fields, Ingleburn, and Minto. St. Peter's Anglican Church dates from 1823, St. John's Catholic Church from 1841. Macquarie Field House (1840s) is one of the finest examples of Regency-style architecture in Australia. The main occupations are poultry and dairy farming and the manufacture of cotton goods and electrical items. Pop. (2004 est.) 149,961.
