Petals & Pups Itineraries

Dogs hold a historic part in the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers with a Pomeranian named “Puppy” leading the Toowoomba Thistle Pipe Band in the very first Carnival parade from 1950-1958. Puppy belonged to the band`s drum major, Mr. Hugh Morgan and was attired in a rug in the band`s tartan pattern.

Today a statue commemorating Puppy the dog stands at Picnic Point (164 Tourist Rd, Toowoomba) in Toowoomba.

To celebrate Puppy’s role in the Carnival we have developed a selection of itineraries showcasing Toowoomba’s best dog friendly carnival time activities to suit all kinds of pups and their owners.
