Japanese Gardens at Campbelltown Arts Centre

Landmarks and Buildings

The Japanese Gardens are a special gift from Koshigaya, Campbelltown’s Sister City in Japan, and are located on the grounds of the Campbelltown Arts Centre.

The Campbelltown Japanese Gardens celebrate the sister city relationship between Campbelltown and Koshigaya. Citizens from Koshigaya presented Campbelltown with the Japanese Gardens on the 10th of April 1988. 

The Gardens symbolise the beliefs and religion of both Shinto, the indigenous religion of Japan, and Zen Buddhism.

The Campbelltown Japanese Gardens feature a traditional waterfall, koi pond, timber bridge, stonework pathways, lush plantings and a 16th Century designed teahouse, handcrafted by Japanese craftsmen.

The aim of the garden is to obtain quiet solitude. The design represents elegant simplicity, lending itself to contemplation and heightened awareness.

The Gardens is also home to the Arts Centre Cafe, a scenic dining location that overlooks the tranquil gardens.
