40th Anniversary of Koshigaya Sister City Relationship

Koshigaya City and Campbelltown will celebrate the 40th anniversary of their sister city relationship on 11 April 2024.


In 1984, to commemorate the beginning of the relationship between the two cities, Koshigaya Park (Campbelltown) and Campbelltown Park (Koshigaya) were both constructed. A few years later, in 1989, Koshigaya City donated a tea house, which is apart of the stunning 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.

What began as an agreement has developed into a more meaningful relationship. The Sister City bond has developed into a range of long-lasting exchange programs and activities that have taken place over the years and continue to this day. In both cities, it has given residents a global perspective on cultural connections through the values of friendship, respect and harmony.
