Wonderful to discover such a peaceful and beautiful Japanese Garden in Dubbo. We accidentally noticed that the Council has an audio tour on the Cya On The Road app that tells interesting history and stories about this place. So we decided to pay a visit, and it's worth it!

Beautiful gardens, heaps of very large koi fish in the pond but is a little hard to see due to the water quality, would definitely recommend having a walk around

This is a very impressive collection of flora that has obviously been carefully planned and well conserved over time.

Well worth a visit.

Wasn’t looking it’s best at this time of year. But still appreciated the peaceful gardens. Easy to walk around. Double bar finches and blue wrens were flitting about. The Koi are huge and are so lovely to see. Would love the the gardens in spring. Well done to the people who look after it

The Dubbo Japanese Gardens are well worth a visit in this historic city. They are fairly new and beautifully laid out, a great place to wander and reflect as we did on a nice autumn day. The trees, plants, and grounds are well landscaped and very colourful. The ponds and lakes with their duck and birds are a great commune with nature. There is plenty of parking at the grounds and entry is free. It is a lovely place to spend half to an hour and reflect on life.

Had a very relaxing visit to the gardens. We were invited to watch the tea ceremony. Spoke with a lovely worker who was replanting in the sensory garden. A credit to Dubbo and to the employees and volunteers who keep this amazing area very well maintained. Free entry which is great but please pop a donation in the box to help keep this going. The kids adventure playground also looked awesome.

Surprised by lack of camellias and azaleas but otherwise a most worthwhile attraction. Beautifully maintained, mobility disadvantaged folk should have no trouble moving around most of the paths.
Wish this garden was much larger. Would have been happy to pay an entrance fee.
A must visit when in Dubbo.

Much smaller than the Nowra Japanese Gardens but it was like a little gem. Beautifully designed and planted for maximum impact. Very peaceful. Nearby Botanical a garden is also tiny but the Sensory Garden was lovely. Lots of different birds playing in the fountains. Take a picnic lunch and enjoy quiet time at one of the benches.

Spent 30 minutes here walking through the gardens. Very tranquil waterways with huge fish. Couple of lovely hidden seats.

Easy parking. Free.
