Suburb snapshot

Cameron Park has experienced an 8.6% price growth in the past 12 months, driven largely by increasing building and construction costs.  

While in the past it attracted a majority of investors, it is now a haven for first homeowners and families, both keen to establish their dream home in an affordable, growing community. 

The more established the estates have become, the more desirable the pocket tends to be.  

Thanks to the growth of infrastructure both internally and in surrounding areas, Cameron Park is now considered more central than ever and is now popular with workers who split their time between work-from-home and Sydney-based employment.
