Japanese Garden

The iconic Japanese Garden on the Toowoomba campus of the University of Southern Queensland is a testament to Toowoomba’s culture of magnificent gardens and community support for true vision.

More than 30 years ago Doctor Adrian Allen dreamed of a beautiful Japanese style garden. Through a huge community effort the dream became a reality. 

The Japanese Garden ‘Ju Raku En’ (roughly translated to mean 'to enjoy peace and longevity in a public place') is one of Australia's largest and most traditionally designed Japanese stroll gardens. The Garden is a relatively young garden and will take many years for it to be considered complete. 

Help us continue to improve this important and idyllic community space and discover one of Toowoomba's most peaceful and beautiful gardens. Give now
