beautifully maintained gardens. Constantly changing with the seasons. New areas have been added over the years. Childrens playground area, great place to take your lunch for a quiet respite.

This is just a magic little garden with a waterfall and ducks around. Wonderful trees and gardens with plenty of off street parking. Just a lovely place to visit and well worth the effect to go there.

Had family in Dubbo so we decided to go have a look at the gardens! They were done very well and looked great! Would recommend to go on a good day though!

Took a trip to the Japanese Gardens to take photographs of the wonderful flowers and trees. Had an amazing time and left with plenty of images to use in my future paintings.

Just having visited Japan we visited these gardens which were within the Dubbo Botanical Gardens just out of interest. The Japanese section is a lot smaller than we imagined and not as grand but still very pleasant. I think the gardens have also suffered from...More

Pretty garden close to centre of Dubbo. There was a security guard at the entrance handing out food to feed the ducks/carp which was a pleasant surprise. Very pretty garden with great spots for pictures.

The garden is open from 9am to 4pm during the week. I think might be the same on weekends or perhaps opens a bit later.
