The Area: Toowoomba
Proud to clearly display the charms of all seasons, Toowoomba is often called Queensland’s Garden City. With over 150 parks and gardens, it is no surprise that the city plays host to the ten-day Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers every year. Food and wine aficionados will also find something for themselves with locally-made treats.
Those keen on history can pay a visit to The Royal Bull’s Head Inn for colonial-era displays or to the Cobb+Co Museum displaying a collection of horse-drawn vehicles and a variety of natural and cultural artifacts of Toowoomba and the Darling Downs. For a dose of natural views head to the Ravensbourne National Park with its towering red cedars and rainforest, and the eucalypt forest, granite boulders and Crows Nest Falls of Crows Nest National Park.
