Campbelltown Japanese Gardens

If the excitement of the Olympic Games coverage gets a bit much, why not find an authentic Japanese Garden to zen out in? Well, all you have to do is come to Campbelltown.

The Campbelltown Arts Centre is home to an exquisite Japanese Garden filled water features, a raked gravel garden, koi carp and a teahouse. The garden was a gift from Campbelltown’s Japanese sister city Koshigaya for Australia’s bicentennial back in 1988, and over the years has become more beautiful as it has become more established.

Koshigawa provided the materials, the design and the labour. It really is like a genuine piece of Japan hidden away in Campbelltown.

Once you’ve re-centred yourself, head inside and check out the latest exhibition at the Art Centre Gallery. The exhibitions change every four to six weeks and will really get you thinking.

And if it’s lunch you’re thinking about, the Arts Centre Café is right there. It’s got great coffee and great values – focusing on sustainability, inclusiveness and providing a broad range of delicious food to the Campbelltown community.
