Linking arms with our local community
At Figtree Hill, getting involved and supporting the local community through a variety of initiatives helps us to connect with future residents and neighbours of our master planned community, located in the heart of the Macarthur region. We’re linking arms with our local community through an exciting local event sponsorship and our Community Grants program, designed to help local groups make a difference.
Lendlease is a Grand Sponsor of the festival of Fisher’s Ghost 2022
The Lendlease Figtree Hill community is excited to be a Grand Sponsor of the upcoming Fisher’s Ghost Festival for 2022. The iconic annual festivity is a wonderful opportunity to connect with the wider community, meet new friendly faces and enjoy the very best of our slice of paradise.
A major event on the Campbelltown calendar, the Fisher’s Ghost Festival is a chance for our beautiful region to showcase its history, achievements, and culture. Dating back to 1956, the festival has grown to include a variety of immersive cultural experiences, entertainment, competitions and more for the whole family to enjoy.
From Thursday, 3rd November to Sunday, 13th November, this 10-day festival commemorates the legend of Fisher’s Ghost, with a fantastic program of events including a rooftop roller-skating event, carnival, car shows, kids’ entertainment, sunset sounds music performances, outdoor cinema, art exhibition and more.
As a Grand Sponsor, Figtree Hill will have a stall at the festival’s Twilight Fair night on Friday, 4th November, where visitors can come along and enjoy free activities, chat to the Lendlease team and learn more about what our community has to offer.
We can’t wait to see you there!
