Dubbo Sho Yoen Japanese Garden

Elizabeth Park

 

This is the name of the Garden. 'Shoyoen' means 'strolling and refreshing garden'. Shoyoen is recognised as being one of the most authentic Japanese Gardens in Australia. It was gifted to Dubbo by our Sister City Minokamo, Japan. 

The abstract and highly stylised miniature landscape is a distinguishing feature of this style of traditional Japanese Garden and is full of religious symbolism and cultural references.
