Queens Park

Queens Park has retained the charm and character common to 19th century public parks and botanic gardens, putting on a special show for her visitors during Carnival.  Spread across 25 hectares, Queens Park is something to behold, with bright flower beds, large canopies of stately trees and acres of expansive green lawns, plus two playgrounds to delight the kids and an off-leash area that keeps the local dogs very happy.  Queens Park is one of Toowoomba’s many gems and not to be missed!

Chalk Art in the Park

While in Queens Park you have the opportunity to watch local artists create a showstopping floral masterpiece before your eyes using only chalk!  Every Saturday in September between 10am to 2pm and it’s free!
