Japanese Gardens, Toowoomba, Qld.

Toowoomba is a city of some 120,000 people 132klm west of Brisbane. It is Australia's second-largest inland city (after Canberra) and sits 700 metres above sea level on an escarpment of the Great Dividing Range. Toowoomba is known as 'The Garden City', justifyably so with 150 parks and gardens open to the general public. Unfortunately, the whole area is suffering badly with the drought.
Among the many great tourist attractions are these beautiful Japanese Gardens.

What a serene and beautiful place Alice. I like the way they've combed/raked the gravel. Doesn't anyone walk on it? It looks totally undisturbed.
You've taken some really lovely photos. Thanks so much for sharing them.
You visited some wonderful places on your trip!
Have a lovely weekend! I hope it keeps raining!!!!

Will HAVE to go to Toowoomba! This is a lovely garden, but I'm sure you're not surprised that I like it.
