Experience the unique sculptures in a beautiful outdoor setting. Experience the Tether of Time - a 15-metre sculpture and meet Esmeralda, the 10-tonne granite prehistoric wombat. Spring time will enhance our visual and smell sense in our visit to the Japanese Gardens. The Japanese Gardens are a special gift from Koshigaya, Campbelltown's Sister City in Japan.   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.

Swim | A trip that involves swimmingWalk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longPhotography | A trip that has a strong focus on encouraging people to capture photographs.Public Transport | There are public transport options to and from this activity.Without a doubt this is one of my favourite walks in the Blue Mountains! Why you may well ask? Stunning scenery with surprisingly wild country so close to Sydney, with some superb walking along Erskine Creek, which is rich in pools and cascades, as well as rugged clifflines. One of the pools is about a 100 metres long and it's a fantastic place for a swim of course! Also, expect to see lots of spring blossoms along the way as we meander down the creek. Basically a good hike for hedonists and nature lovers that won't fail to satisfy your inner cravings for the wild side of life! Rock scrambling.
