“thankful”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Visited in 2004. Delighted to find it not damaged by floods. Drove all the way from Brisbane, a long way for an Englishman:-), just to see the garden and was not disappointed. Better than anything I saw in Japan.

“Tranquil”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

We weren't going to go to the Japanese gardens as we had already visited all of the other ones but we stopped by anyway - and I am so glad we did!

We were so impressed with the Japanese gardens, they are so well maintained and the lay-out is great. We walked around and then stopped at one of the benches just to sit and enjoy the peace.

“Almost as good as being in Japan”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

I've travelled extensively around Japan and these Japanese Gardens at Toowoomba are very much like the real thing. Very beautifully architecturally designed gardens. Cherry blossoms, Japanese maples, carved hedges, turtles, ducks, birds & stone paths are some of the things you will find here. Well worth a look.

“A bit of Zen in Toowoomba!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

We went on a Sunday morning after breakfast at Picnic Point (yes I'll do a review on that one also!) and soaked up the tranquility and gorgeous surroundings. Even if you aren't a horticultural person it's just a beautiful place to visit.
