The Chronicle Garden Competition is in its 68th year and is proudly owned and operated by The Chronicle, Toowoomba’s local fountain of news and happenings.
The Garden City is home to thousands of passionate gardeners who work year-round transforming their private gardens into stunning floral showpieces.

There are so many amazing private gardens to explore you’ll need The Chronicle Garden Competition Guide and map issued in The Chronicle newspaper on Friday 15th September for $1.70.
