Queens Park

Queens Park

Queens Park has retained the charm and character common to 19th century public parks and botanic gardens, putting on a special show for her visitors during Carnival.  Spread across 25 hectares, Queens Park is something to behold, with bright flower beds, large canopies of stately trees and acres of expansive green lawns, plus two playgrounds to delight the kids and an off-leash area that keeps the local dogs very happy.  Queens Park is one of Toowoomba’s many gems and not to be missed!  Botanic Gardens is the home to many events and activations during Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers, including thousands of blooms, the very popular Info Hub for collecting programs, merchandise and maps through to ferris wheel rides and over 70 free musical performances during Heritage Bank Parkland Entertainment.
