Beautiful scenery, when you get inside you would think you are in Japan. As all Japanese gardens the design blocks out the external noise. You would not believe that there is a very large university right next door. I would suggest to get yourself a large coffee and go and sit in the middle and just let the time pass you by.

I love Japanese gardens and have been to Kyoto and othe hot spots in a quest to see the best. This is a seriously good garden. A garden this good in Kyoto would have people crawling all over it. There is better, but you will have to go to Japan to see it. Highly recommend.

The Japanese Gardens are located adjacent to the campus of the University of Southern Queensland and offer a tranquil place to picnic or stroll through the beautiful grounds. Well maintained, the gardens offer a variety of paths over and around a central lake. There is a secret waterfall that cascades over boulders that is a favourite with the younger members or you could lose yourself in the bamboo forest. These gardens are a favourite of mine in Toowoomba, which boasts other interesting gardens worth visiting. While I have recommended these gardens are suitable for the whole family, they are just as inviting to couples and the solo visitor.

Please take time to suck in this tranquil place. It is close to heaven. Immaculately presented gardens, peaceful, beautiful trees, flowers and waters. Great for weddings. Wonderful if you want to get back to yourself. This is a place for self-healing and contemplation.
