An Australian Japanese Garden

Posted on


Thanks for reading my Japanese garden blog.

In response to a couple of e mails from ‘down under’ prodding me to post about Australian Japanese gardens, it is my pleasure to recommend one today.

Canberra, is the Australian capital- not Sydney!! and it has a very good Japanese garden near the foreign embassy section of the city and it nestles alongside Lake Burley- Griffin.

The stone lanterns were donated as a gesture of friendship by the people of the Japanese city of Nara in April 1997. A plaque commemorates this date and the donation.

Springtime is the perfect time to vsiit these Japanese gardens and so right now is a good time to go!

There is a strolling garden and some really attractive walking path circles.

The middle of the garden has a wooden gazebo, you can sit and eat your lunch there if you wish!

Watch out for the stunning Cherry blossoms too. The garden also has a stunning stone pagoda.

Apparently, it could be kept a little better in accordance with Japanese tradition but it is a really nice calm place to visit!
