The Boyce Gardens Estate is a Heritage listed jewel in the crown of the University of Queensland. The vision for the future of this gem is to engage and educate the community and students for generations to come. Located in Toowoomba, the Garden City, the Gardens are extremely well placed to attract local, national and international attention from plant enthusiast and researchers.
UQ is moving forward with a development of the UQ Boyce Estate into parkland and facilities that showcase the value to society of native plant conservation and biodiversity. This vision will reflect the entrepreneurial spirit of the Boyce family who through the Toowoomba Foundry produced the iconic Griffith and Southern Cross windmills.
Mr and Mrs Boyce, through their generous bequest to UQ, have left an inspiring legacy for the enjoyment of future generations. The boundless opportunity for education, cultural experience and recreation, which the Gardens represent, is priceless. By supporting the Boyce Gardens you can join a fitting tribute to a remarkable gift made by extraordinary people.
