Japanese Garden Ju Raku En

One of the most beautiful and peaceful parks in Toowoomba is the University of Southern Queensland’s Japanese Garden. This 3 hectare site is one of Australia’s largest and most traditionally designed Japanese stroll gardens. Ju Raku En, roughly translated, means ‘to enjoy peace and longevity in a public place’. Its elements of mountain stream and waterfall, dry garden, central lake, azalea hill, three kilometres of paths, 230 species of Japanese and Australian native trees and plants combine in a seamless and restful harmony.

Hot Tip:  Don’t miss a special demonstration of various martial arts by the USQ Martials Arts Club on Saturday 22 September from 10am to 1pm !

Don’t miss the riot of colour at this stunning haven.
