Heritage Cattle Tank

A short walk up Dumaresq Street from the heart of Campbelltown will bring you to this relic of early Colonial NSW.

This Heritage Listed, masonry walled, cattle tank was built around 1838 and is believed to be the last convict-built structure in Campbelltown.

  1. The overflow from the town water supply filled the tank and the cattle were presumably herded in via the ramp for a wash and a frolic in the water. This part of the system is reasonably intact. The upstream reservoir and filtration system is in need of some maintenance.
