For its third consecutive year, Unlock Camden is back to promote the historic buildings and locations across the Camden area.

Unlock Camden coincides with NSW History Week, which runs from Saturday 4 to Sunday 12 September.

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, virtual tours will replace the traditional guided tours and will be available on Council’s social media pages. The program will include:

  • A virtual historic tour;
  • The #MyCamdenStory online promotion;
  • An exhibition of Camden images past and present; and
  • A heritage of Western Sydney virtual tour app.

Mayor of Camden, Cr Therese Fedeli, said Unlock Camden was a very important aspect of History Week, as it delved into the stories behind our historical buildings.

“Camden’s history is so rich and colourful and many of our amazing heritage buildings and locations are so beautiful and special because of their stories and history,” Cr Fedeli said.

“It’s definitely a shame we can’t get together and celebrate this great event in person, but it’s important we keep to restrictions for everyone’s safety. It’s great to have the option of following our social media pages as we virtually explore the wonderful history of our great hometown.

“And even better – you can enjoy these virtual tours from the comfort of your couch, with a coffee in your pyjamas!”
