The Bundaberg Japanese Garden

A place of tranquility and peace in the Bundaberg Botanical Gardens, the Japanese Garden can be found nestling beside "Fairymead House" - a large high-set Queenslander with wide verandahs. Once the home of local sugar-cane pioneer families, 'the big house' was moved to its present location and is now a museum and a venue for Sunday afternoon musical soirees. The rich fertile soil of the area and the loving expert care lavished by the local council gardeners make the neighbouring Japanese Garden a haven of beauty and grace.
