Campbelltown and Koshigaya – 40 Years of Connections

To help celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Sister City relationship between the cities of Campbelltown, New South Wales and Koshigaya, Japan, the Campbelltown and Airds Historical Society, has installed a large display of objects and photos, at Glenalvon House.

The enduring 40-year connection between Koshigaya and Campbelltown has provided many cultural exchanges for the residents, young and old, of both cities, including the opportunity to visit and experience another country and culture.

This display includes a large collection of many beautiful objects from Japan, which have been obtained over many years by Mark Annetts. Mark has travelled to Japan many times, as part of his work with the Campbelltown-Koshigaya Sister Cities Association – Youth Delegation and has kindly loaned these wonderful items for this display.

The display also celebrates 40 years of the creation of Koshigaya Park, which continues to be the focal point for many of Campbelltown’s community events and festivals, bringing together and connecting the city’s residents and visitors, and will include photos of some of these events over the past 40 years.

In another connection, this display compliments the exhibition installed at Campbelltown City Library.
