Great place to visit to enjoy something a bit different to your typical garden. Spotting the turtles and enjoying waddling grease is great for the soul. 🐲⛩🎋

Well kept and amazing plants. Go early or late to avoid the noisy uncontrolled children that spoil the word "tranquil" gardens. Plenty of rubbish bins but inconsiderates still find places in bushes and flower beds to throw rubbish. Have some respect for a free beautiful...More

It's stunning. I take friends and family who visit there to 'show off' Toowoomba a bit. Each season it changes. It is so well done. I love all the ducks and turtles. A must see!

We should have visited this garden very early in the morning to avoid the crowd and enjoy the serenity, tranquility and beauty of this Japanese garden. It is a wonderful place to take lots of lovely pictures.

There is no entrance fee for the Japanese garden. There is a donation box but I honestly haven't seen anyone put anything in it for years. Well worth a look.

Dog are permitted within the Japanese Garden, but must be on a leash at all times. The dog owner is also required by using an appropriate scoop and bag to remove any droppings. :)
