What a wonderful little town Esk is, I just loved it there. For the past 2 weeks I've been camped beside a friend, Colleen and of course little Max her puppy. We've had a lovely relaxing time - lots of walking (but unfortunately there's always a cafe at the end of the walk), and driving to local sights.

If you're ever in Toowoomba a visit to the Japanese Gardens is a must - the gardens were designed in 1989 by Professor Kinsaku Nakane - renowned as the modern day master of Japanese garden design. There are around 2,500 Azaleas planted on the hill behind the lake - they are pruned to eventually provide a wave-like massed green mat which will burst into vivid colour in Spring.
