Japanese Garden - Toowoomba QLD
The Japanese Garden was officially opened in 1989 and is located adjacent to the University of Southern Queensland. The gardens cover an area of 4 hectares and is jointly owned by the University of Southern Queensland and the Toowoomba City Council. Modelled on the concept of the Stroll Garden from the Japanese Edo period the design is characteristically Japanese. Important design principles from Taoism, Zen Buddhism and Shintoism have been incorporated into the garden. Deciduous trees such as liquid amber, crepe myrtles, ginko bilobas and maples create beautiful colours in autumn. The supervisor of the gardens, Russell Campbell, has visited Japan to build his knowledge of the traditional Japanese garden. Gravel underfoot, fragrant trees, running water and colourful bridges make this an excellent place for physical, mental and spiritual refreshment.
