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.
