Toowoomba isn’t just the state’s largest inland city—it’s a fusion of rustic allure and urban sophistication. With its unique blend of country warmth and a growing coffee and street art culture, Toowoomba truly stands out. Known affectionately as the Garden City, it boasts an impressive array of parks, gardens, and a radiant annual showcase: the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers. This month-long celebration every September transforms the city into a kaleidoscope of colours, celebrating the onset of Spring in grand style. Whether wandering through sun-kissed sunflower farms, exploring its bustling country towns, eating your way through the annual “Treats Menu” or getting lost amidst the colourful flora during the Carnival, Toowoomba promises unforgettable experiences.
