Gardens of Toowoomba
Laurel Bank Park
Laurel Bank Park is truly spectacular during The Carnival of Flowers. It features witty topiary, scented gardens, bulb displays, a children’s ornament garden, the magnificent (and fragrant) wisteria arbour and some gorgeous flowering peaches.
Other gardens to visit during the festival are Picnic Point – for the view, Peacehaven – for the native plants and wildlife, Spring Bluff for the history (take the train trip if you can!) and the Japanese Garden at the University of Southern QLD is the ideal place to stroll and meditate.
