About
A stroll through the State Heritage listed Queens Park and Botanic Gardens is an absolute must for any visitor to the Garden City. Set across more than 25 picturesque hectares, the parkland has been enjoyed by generations of locals and regional visitors since it first opened to the public in the late 1800s. It's a beautiful calm space where nature showcases its seasonal offerings, alongside the city's bustling CBD. In spring and summer, riotous colour spots garden beds in a shout out to the warmer weather, while autumn obliges with its own radiant show. Dollops of red and orange swirl across the landscape as the leaves of giant deciduous trees transform and fall, laying a textured, multi-coloured carpet underneath. A variety of community activities and annual events are also hosted at Queens Park and Botanic Gardens with Toowoomba's internationally renowned Carnival of Flowers and its signature Flower, Food and Wine Festival leading the way.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Came here whilst the flower festival was on. Yes the park was busy but not overcrowded. The flowers for the festival were beautiful to look at and could see how much effort had gone into it

Beautiful park, visited during the very beginning of the Toowoomba Flower Festival. It was extremely busy late afternoon on a Sunday. Glad I walked from the hotel, would not have found a park. Definitely worth a visit flowers were amazing, a real credit to Toowoomba. Wonderful festival but very crowded.

Sadly the floral gardens were not at their best when we visited because of the terrible, heavy rains that had battered everything for a week of so. However the groundsmen/women and gardeners were already hard at work clearing the beds and borders ready for replanting.
Judging by the pictures from previous years the gardens will soon be in full bloom again.

Somehow I was expecting a much larger floral display after a walk through the extensive park. The garden beds were beautifully manicured and looked to be just before their prime. It was a shame that the information kiosk was not manned given many people visit before the major event weekend

Queens Park Gardens during the Carnival of Flowers is pretty, there's no doubt. Definitely do this park BEFORE Laurel Bank Park, because if you came here second, you'd be disappointed. Its a good step BEFORE Laurel Bank Park. Spacious a pretty.
When its not the Carnival of Flowers, its still a terrific place with LOADS of open spaces for picnics and games.

We were hear at the very end of a wet winter and the effect of spring had not quite begun, but the gardens were beautiful with the few early blooms and the magnificent stately trees. The potential for spring’s bounty was clearly suggested. The local council keeps these gardens in peak condition and they were beginning preparations for The Spring Carnival of Flowers.
