Oran Park, New South Wales
Sydney, New South Wales
|Location||60 km (37 mi) from Sydney CBD|
The area now known as Oran Park was originally home to the Muringong, southernmost of the Darug people. In 1805 John Macarthur established his property at Camden where he raised merino sheep. The town replaced Oran Park Raceway, which stood from 1962 - 2010. The circuit hosted the Australian Grand Prix (non-F1) and rounds of the V8 Supercars.
Oran Park is part of the north ward of Camden Council represented by David Funnell (currently deputy mayor of Camden), Cindy Cagney and Peter Johnson. Chris Patterson is currently the local mayor. The suburb is contained within the federal electorate of Macarthur, represented by former ultra-marathon runner Pat Farmer (Liberal), and the state electorate of Camden, currently held by former mayor Geoff Corrigan (Labor).
