Definitely worth the small drive to spend some tranquil time. While it is "small", the designers have done a magnificent job with 4 Japanese bridges, reflective ponds, and so many plants and paths to spend time. A definite must which many people may miss

Nerida Japanes Gardens truly beautiful. Azaleas in full bloom at present and many flowering trees made a resplendent display. Easy walking trails traverse the lake to provide many aspects to the gardens, including the sparse, but beautiful Zen Garden.

We spent half a day wandering around these gardens. Beautifully designed and well maintained. It was very varied with lots of different things to see in such a relatively small space. Some areas were a bit difficult for my companion who is less mobile, but there were plenty of places to walk easily and just sit and enjoy the different vistas. There were lots of lovely perfumes and singing birds, so we really enjoyed it.

Located in the University's grounds at the end of West Street just outside the CBD this garden is most certainly worth the trip. It is rightly renowned as one of Australia's most beautiful and mature Japanese gardens. Try to visit at a quiet time of day and your visit will be very tranquil. The bird life is also lovely.

This was a very pretty and extensive garden. There were so many photo opportunities. It was a place where you could wander and enjoy the views or stop and relax. We had no issue gaining a great parking spot and despite there being many people (Carnival of Flowers time), we were able to get stunning photos, just by being careful with the timing. We visited in the later afternoon and I would highly recommend a visit when in Toowoomba.

I’ve visited this place a few times. It really is a little slice of paradise (Japanese style) in the most unlikely of places. Easily explored in half an hour, or take a seat/spread out on the lawn and stay much longer. Be sure to say g’day to the tortoises.

Free entry - all they ask is a donation if you’re able.

Toowoomba local so lucky enough to visit the Gardens regularly. They are beautiful in Spring when the flowering cherries blossom. But enjoyable no matter what the season. Donation boxes are at each gate. Plenty of parking in the USQ car park next door.

Was very happy we decided to explore the Japanese gardens. Our young kids were excited to see all the different ducks lazing around. We even got to see little tortoise's sun bathing.
Even though most tree's weren't in flower yet it was still beautiful. Very pretty surroundings & a relaxing morning out with great photos opportunities. Plan on returning later in spring when everything's in bloom, it will be amazing. Great couple of hours for any age.
You can even take your own picnic & sit by the lake and relax in peace.

Best part was the RED entrance gates & Bridges. Ibis, wild ducks & Domestic Ducks are polluting the ponds, making it smelly. Brush Turkey's make walking the paths dangerous with the lItter they continually scratch out.

Even though we were there in Autumn, the garden were still beautiful to look at and very well maintained. Search for the turtles sticking the head out of the walk or sunning in rocks. Lots of ducks - need signage to advise not to feed them bread.
