Macarthur tourismThe booming Macarthur region of NSW is shaping up as one of the State’s leading tourist destinations. It has plans for a Moore Park-style entertainment precinct, more hotels and a beach and lagoon.

 
The region is preparing to be a tourism hub for the south west, with plans for the Leumeah Entertainment Quarter expected to lead the area’s visitor revival.

 
With a regional population of more than 500,000 within 15 years, and influx of tourists from the Western Sydney airport, the Macarthur area is geared up for a tourism boom.

 
Plans for the entertainment quarter include a new 25,000-seat regional sporting and entertainment complex, a 5000-seat convention centre, a theatre and other attractions close to Leumeah Station.

 
Sydney Business Chamber Western Sydney director David Borger said that the redevelopment of Campbelltown Stadium and establishment of the Leumeah entertainment precinct is significant in making Campbelltown a tourism hub.

 
The Leumeah precinct has been identified as part of the Greater Macarthur Priority Growth Area strategy by the NSW Planning and Environment Department as a major destination.

 
Mr. Borger said that working with the private sector would be an important step in building tourism. “We need to think big and work out how the private sector can get involved,” he said.
