The truth is, as much as I would love to be spending every weekend traveling around Australia, I can’t always afford that. Especially when it’s the Christmas season and I want to be buying gifts and I’m spending a small fortune to ship things to the state for the holidays. So, I’m trying to remember to visit places locally.

As the second largest inland city in Australia, Toowoomba isn’t a lot but it does have some charm. It’s known for it’s gardens and parks (it has over 150), so I thought I would spend one Sunday checking out the Japanese Garden. So¬†far, I think it may be one of my favorite retreats in Australia.

they had a huge section dedicated to growing bamboo which was really neat! It makes a really unique sound when the wind blows, which I kind of loved

I’m sure there will be a few more Staycation posts when I can’t get away. My camera pretty much hasn’t left my side since I got here so I doubt there will be a shortage of pictures. Stay tuned!
