Toowoomba

Crowning the edge of the Great Dividing Range 90 minutes west of Brisbane is Southern Queensland Country's largest town of Toowoomba. Perched 700 metres above sea level and overlooking the Lockyer Valley the 'Garden City' is home to over 150 public parks, making the idyllic picnic setting under the shade of a jacaranda or camphor laurel tree.

Spend your days exploring almost 200 years of history hidden inside heritage-listed sites and homesteads, including the famed Cobb & Co Museum. Later, rest weary feet in a boutique bed and breakfast with a cosy open fireplace and regional produce.

Witness seasonal changes of colour and aromas in the crisp country air, especially around the annual Carnival of Flowers in September. Couple the popular event with day trips in every direction: to Steele Rudd's pub in the south; hamlets strung to the west; rolling farmland to the east; or to the northern Bunya Mountains.
