“Quaint and a reasonable interpretation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

It's a small quaint Japanese style garden and a nice haven for the children to wander over bridges and stepping stones. Whilst the trees and shrubs are not entirely those found in Japan and the neatness is not entirely there, it was still a pleasure to wander through.

“One of Toowoomba's best attractions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is a very beautiful garden laid out by a Japanese designer. The garden changes to reflect the seasons so it is worth visiting at any time of the year. It is a very peaceful place away from main roads and traffic noise.
Well worth a visit.

“Toowoombah's Japansese Garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Well worth a visit. A hidden gem unless you know of it as not on the main road and not (to my knowledge) well advertised. Allow a couple of hours to stroll around and soak up the atmosphere
