Nerima Gardens Queens Park


The picture perfect self-contained Japanese garden sits on the eastern hill end of Queens Park behind the historic caretakers cottage and was built in consultation with and to complement gardens in Ipswich's sister city Nerima.

As such it makes a splendid contemplative retreat, with a series of winding paths through fir trees and Australian natives and Japanese bridges crossing bubbling streams that are designed to reflect Ipswich's topography. Halfway down is a model traditional Japanese tea house, complete with rattan matting inside and a small verandah overlooking a stream and on the lower section boardwalks traversing an ornamental lake (which portrays the ocean).
