Wyreema: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Westbrook War Memorial


The WWI memorial in the small rural Darling Downs community of Westbrook is evidence of how pervasive the effect of war was on Queenslanders left behind. The popular 'Digger' statue with an honour roll was unveiled around June 1922 by federal parliamentarian LE Groom (his father William had served as the Darling Downs' first federal politician from 1901).

The memorial records that 47 local men went to war. About half of the families listed are represented by more than one member. Two families each saw four of their men go off to war. Westbrook community mourned the loss of 10 lives.

The 4.2 metre monument, a life-sized soldier statue standing on a pedestal, was designed and produced by Bruce Brothers of Toowoomba.

Once, the memorial stood in an open field. Today, development around it finds it adjacent to Westbrook's public hall.

Ju Raku En Japanese Gardens, Toowoomba


One of Toowoomba's most peaceful and beautiful parks is the four and a half hectare Japanese Garden at the University of Southern Queensland. Located on the northern side of the campus, it's Australia's largest and most traditionally designed Japanese stroll garden.

Its elements of mountain stream and waterfall, Dry Garden, central lake, Azalea Hill, three kilometres of paths, 230 species of Japanese and Australian native trees and plants, and lawns combine in a seamless and restful harmony.

Japanese gardens emphasise the use of rocks to create three dimensional pictures. All of the large rocks in Ju Raku En were placed by the garden's designer, Professor Kinsaku Nakane of Kyoto, to appear naturally dispersed in a random way.

Visitors stroll through the garden or relax on the seat near the Dry Garden; it's not uncommon to see artists quietly painting a scene or children feeding bread to the fish or birds, which include swans, ducks, geese and smaller natives. Japanese maples provide a riot of autumn colour, while in spring masses of lilac blossoms hang from the Wisteria Pergola - the perfect backdrop for a wedding.

Laurel Bank Park


Laurel Bank Park is a beautiful parkland close to Toowoomba's city centre, featuring spectacular manicured gardens, a scented garden, a playground, picnic area and croquet greens.

As well as containing a collection of exotic trees, the park is home to the Scented Gardens. This unique 'garden within a garden' was created from ideas presented by the Downs Association of the Blind, and occupies approximately half a hectare of the park's four and a half hectares. Fragrant blooms, herbs and shrubs grow in raised beds. Playground equipment and a gazebo complete the park.

Prior to 1932 the park was owned by Mr Samuel George Stephens. In 1932 Mr Stephens donated the land to the people of Toowoomba, making the Toowoomba City Council official custodian.

The gardens were designed by Mr Stephens himself before he handed them over. Mr Stephens was known to many as 'the man of flowers', and it's because of his love of flowers that he asked that the land not be used as a sporting facility, only the Croquet Greens along Herries Street were permitted. The Laurel Bank Hall was built during World War II to be used as a mess hall for the United States naval troops.

Toowoomba Water Bird Habitat


Nestled into suburban Toowoomba at Rangeville, the habitat covers 7.6 hectares (19 acres), which is quite a small area to establish as a diverse wetland. Environmental diversity is essential if the habitat is to attract a variety of waterbirds. There are deep and shallow lakes, areas of reeds, mud-banks, islands and grassy areas to provide feeding, roosting and nesting conditions required by different birds.

To complete this habitat, over 2000 shrubs and trees were planted to attract native birds. All of the plants are Australian species appropriate to the locality. The plantings on the perimeter help screen the habitat from the surrounding roads and houses, creating a peaceful atmosphere within.

Waterbird habitats are characteristically places of light and open spaces, so large areas of grassland have been retained. You can see birds such as maned duck and straw-necked ibis which feed mainly on these grasslands.
