Southern Queensland Country

Toowoomba


Description

Crisp winter air, knee-deep autumn leaves, clear summer days and a riot of colour in spring; nowhere else in Queensland will you experience all four seasons as distinctively as right here.

Just 90 minutes from Brisbane, Toowoomba crowns the edge of the Great Dividing Range 700 metres above sea level, overlooking the Lockyer Valley. So close but a world away! Southern Queensland Country's biggest town still has a country town vibe.

Treat your senses... literally, to the annual Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers and local gourmet produce. Queensland's Garden City, Toowoomba, has more than 150 public parks and gardens to enjoy.

Celebrate a kaleidoscope of colour in September with more than 90 events during the 10 day Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers, Australia's longest running horticultural festival. From home gardening to DIY workshops, the festival is a true celebration of all things spring. You can mix it with the locals at the Floral Parade, the Flower, Food & Wine Festival and the Live Concert Series in the park. Sway along with the parkland music entertainment in three of Toowoomba's major parks: Picnic Point, Laurel Bank Park and Queens Park. See the visual arts displays throughout the city or catch a movie under the stars.

From March to May mellow tints of red and gold mark the autumn showing. In the winter months, enjoy rugging up and winding down. Spicy scents of local wines and delicious foods will tantalise the tastebuds and warm the soul.

To the west you'll find rolling plains are home to little rural townships, and warm bed and breakfasts. Cruise north to Crows Nest through hamlets strung along the eastern escarpment and check out nurseries, cafés, museums and galleries. Go south into the country that was the setting for Steele Rudd's stories, and enjoy the atmosphere in rustic historic pubs. In the north-west, the Bunya Mountains rise dramatically against the sky and offer spectacular mountain scenery and abundant wildlife.
