Toowoomba has been acknowledged for its standard in gardening for over 160 years. The rich volcanic soils and the distinct seasons are ideal for both exotic and native plants. Toowoomba’s reputation as Queensland’s Garden city is well deserved.
Carnival of Flowers and the Chronicle Garden Competition date back seventy years. The first parade was led by a bullock team and reportedly stretched over 3 miles long. This year changes have been made, but the gardening spirit of Toowoomba will as always put on a brilliant show in its public and private gardens. Join Japan Holidays on this fantastic garden tour!
