Japanese Garden Ju Raku En

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.


Open 7am to 6pm daily.
