The locals love it and visitors travel from all over the country to get amongst it – coming into its 72nd year the award-winning Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers continues to bloom. Spectacular gardens, country touring, live music and local food and wine are just a small taste of what’s on offer over the course of this bloomin’ great event. It is the longest-running floral event of its kind in Australia as the premiere celebration of horticulture and all things spring.
Extending on its usual ten-day format, 2021’s Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers will be a breathtaking month full of flowers, flavours and sounds, taking over the picturesque Southern Queensland city with a program of unique events and experiences including incredible live music acts, award-winning parks, some of the best food and wine in the region and a huge range of cultural adventures. Some of the event highlights include the 190,000-strong floral displays in Laurel Bank Park and the Botanic Gardens of Queens Park, parkland entertainment, a ferris wheel, food trucks and twilight tours taking place in Laurel Bank Park.
