Abstract: This paper argues that a better understanding of suburbia is warranted within the cultural policy discussion given that Australia is essentially a suburban nation. Using the case study of Campbelltown, located fifty-five kilometres southwest of the Sydney central business district and home to 142,000 people, the paper examines suburban environments through notions of cultural identity, including events and narratives, and explores how urban growth and changing landscapes have contributed to constructing a range of suburban experiences that constitute contemporary Sydney
