Well I am hooked! I'm a Toowoomba Festival of Flowers junkie from now on as this was my first visit to the Festival (127 km west of Brisbane) which began with the street parade on 22nd Sept and events staged over the following week. A place to take young kids (yes), seniors, and budding gardeners and overseas visitors. Get the away from the coast and soak up the ambience of a beautiful city in the country.
I'm not a great gardener, but thanks to GPS we took in a fair number of gardens and were blown away by the dedication and presentation of Prize Winners 1 and 2 in particular. We enjoyed a wonderful two days in Toowoomba - great accommodation, public gardens, no charge or donation to many events such as the Teapot display, Clivia display - wonderful - and lots more. Need to put on your calendar for a great weekend with friends or family.
