Crisp winter air, knee-deep autumn leaves, clear summer days and a riot of colour in spring; nowhere else in Queensland will you experience all four seasons as distinctively as right here. Just 90 minutes from Brisbane, Toowoomba crowns the edge of the Great Dividing Range 700 metres above sea level, overlooking the Lockyer Valley. So close but a world away! Southern Queensland Country's biggest town still has a country town vibe. Treat your senses... literally, to the annual Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers and local gourmet produce. Queensland's Garden City, Toowoomba, has more than 150 public parks and gardens to enjoy.
