It is a lovely place to spend an hour. I had been to Lok Hup workshop at the Taoist TaiChi Centre and had an hour to spare. Although its not a huge area it is packed with features and little pathways, bridges with poetic names, varied plants and even a waterfall. University students and nearby residents use it and are...

We had an hour gap so decided to visit this garden. What a pleasant surprise. It was a simple but beautiful garden. Flowing water and ducks were nice. Easy walk for kids. Even they enjoyed the visit. Nice and well maintained.

The Japanese Gardens are a great place to visit all year round. The colours of the trees in autumn are so different to the blossoms in Spring. The look of the gardens change dramatically at the change of seasons.

Pleasantly surprised to see such a beautiful tranquil garden. I had visited Toowoomba many times but had never visited this fabulous manicured bonzai Japanese garden. There were lots of families visiting with kids excitedly feeding the fish and ducks. the flowers in bloom were beautiful and very showy. I would happily recommend anyone to explore this wonderful place.

Paid a visit to the gardens, nice and peaceful and lovely just to stroll around man made lakes and Japanese Style bridges with ducks and birds. Been to gardens in Japan and this is quite like them. Also no cost to enter.

A good place for families to come and enjoy the pretty scenery, walks and flora. Unfortunate that it isn't spring otherwise I'd give this review a 5. Worth visiting.

The gardens are a I won't say a natuaral beauty for that would be putting down the Gardners who have spent their time planning and looking after this most beautiful set out Japanese garden. the Bonsai and the blossoms in bloom are just...
