Toowoomba City Cr Geoff Mc Donald said, “What makes Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers so special is that there is so much to experience – if you love emerging music, we have that.   If you are a gardener, we have plenty! I  f you are a foodie, then prepare for flavour overload.   If you love a low and slow BBQ with a beer to match, that’s easy! If you are here for gardening tips and tricks, then take a seat.   If wine is your thing, then choose a colour!   If you want to learn the history of our classic pubs, take in a steam train ride, experience a Tombstone Tour, be wowed by an amazing teapot exhibition or be surrounded by hanging flower baskets, then we also have all that!”
