Ju Raku En Japanese Garden

Gardens in Toowoomba

One of Australia's largest and most traditional Japanese gardens, Ju Raku En is around 4km south of the centre at the University of Southern Queensland. The 5-hectare oasis was designed by a Japanese professor in Kyoto and contains all the expected elements, from rippling lake and carefully aligned boulders to conifers, bamboo stands, cherry blossom trees and photogenic bridges.
