The Campbelltown 'Links' wall hanging is a pictorial record of the Campbelltown area and surrounds. The idea was introduced in 2000 and the completed wall hanging, made by a team of volunteers, unveiled in 2008. The hanging is very heavily and beautifully hand embroidered, appliqued and embellished, it needs to be seen to be appreciated. From market gardens, a pioneer cemetery, sheep grazing along the river to the O-Bahn, detail in the embroidery is amazing. It is on permanent display at the entrance to the Campbelltown Library.
