A friendship without borders

Campbelltown signed a Sister City agreement with Koshigaya City, Japan on 11 April 1984.

What began as an agreement has developed into a more meaningful relationship. With a range of exchange programs and activities taking place over the years, the Sister City bond has evolved, giving residents of both cities a global perspective on cultural connections through the values of friendship, respect and harmony.

To commemorate the beginning of the relationship: 

  • Koshigaya Park (Campbelltown) and Campbelltown Park (Koshigaya) were both constructed in 1984.
  • In 1989, Koshigaya City donated a tea house which is now part of the beautiful Japanese Gardens in the Campbelltown Arts Centre.
  • In return, Campbelltown City donated a number of native birds to Koshigaya when the Campbelltown Forest of Wildbirds was officially opened in 1995.
