We visited the Park during the Carnival of Flowers. The gardens were so beautiful. All involved should be very proud.

Enjoyed strolling around this park a few times during our stay in Toowoomba. Lots of historical monuments have been installed here and the flower displays were still beautiful from the festival of flowers.

Wander through Queens Park, Laurel Bank Park or the Japanese Gardens at the University...the blooms at this time of year are stunning and recent good rainfall will continue the display longer than usual. Don't miss the gardens here, their beauty will stay with you forever

We visited the park a few times on our visit to Toowoomba. The carnival of flowers were in bloom and we enjoyed a picnic in the park. The kids enjoyed the playgrounds and wide open spaces.

The flowers were simply glorious, with great beds of colour and a quirky, old back garden theme. Late September or early October is definitely the best time to visit.

Despite the drought, the gardens were beautifully presented. Central Aussie theme. It was windy & the flowers looked beautiful with their dancing blooms

Hi Had a drive around Toowoomba today. As a previous person has stated, most of the flowers have been removed from Queens Park, and the gardens are not as spectacular as they are at Carnival of Flowers time in September each... More
