The Gecko is a significant animal totem / motif amongst some Aboriginal groups in the area. This work pays respect to the culture and heritage of those people. It provides an interesting aspect of a well visited part of the park complex
Dubbo Sho Yoen Japanese Garden
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.
