Spring really is a lovely time of the year in Brisbane, especially when the flowers start blooming. We’re looking at you, jacaranda trees. In turn, this makes saunters around the city even more glorious. Because, who doesn’t love flowers, right? Come September, you can catch tremendous seas of colour at Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers.
For the whole month, this Insta-worthy flower festival will take over Queens Park in Toowoomba, which is around 1.5 hours west of Brisbane. In previous years, the celebration has attracted massive crowds, and with good reason – the flower displays are magnificent and the events are guaranteed to put a spring in your step.
If it’s anything like the 2022 program, the floral exhibits won’t be the only thing on show at the festival. Last year, we were dazzled by illuminated after-dark light shows at the Botanic Gardens, outdoor cinema, and also fireworks setting the sky ablaze. Be sure to look out for the Grand Central Floral Parade, which is a favourite at the festival.
As for food, you’ll be spoilt for choice with food trails, markets, and more.
