South-western Sydney is a region of the metropolitan area in south-west Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. It is part of the predominantly working class area of Greater Western Sydney. The region lies in the Cumberland Plain.

Local government areas

There are a number of different boundaries for the region. Sometimes it includes only the areas around the suburbs of Liverpool, Canterbury-Bankstown and Campbelltown. Increasingly, it has also included Macarthur region (the local government areas of Camden Council and Wollondilly Shire Council). It may also include the whole area from the inner south-west suburbs around Canterbury and Bankstown to the outer south-west suburbs around Campbelltown and beyond to Camden.

In this second, broader sense, South-western Sydney is the suburbs found in the local government areas of the Canterbury-Bankstown, City of Fairfield, City of Liverpool, City of Campbelltown, Camden Council, and Wollondilly Shire Council, as well as minor parts of the Sutherland Shire, Georges River Council and Bayside Council.
