Petals, the wait is over! Celebrate the return of Toowoomba’s iconic Carnival of Flowers with an incredible program of events set to showcase the finest in regional florals and flavours.

Kicking off 1 September, you’ll be treated to 30 petal-filled days blooming with spectacular arrays of florals, immersive food and wine tours, and twilight events. 

Feast your eyes on flourishing floral displays and petals galore with over 190,000 gorgeously curated botanicals from Australian Natives to jaw-dropping geraniums, which’ll soon be filling Toowoomba’s whimsical gardens.   

But the blooms aren’t the only reason to hit the road ­– get set to discover all the stellar events this year’s fest has on offer, too. From tasting seasonal produce to sipping on the Lockyer Valley’s finest drops, and trawling through twilight markets, there’s plenty of ways to explore Toowoomba and surrounds. 

Don’t miss out on the Festival of Food and Wine, which’ll have you wining and dining across three epic days featuring flavour-filled dishes, fresh produce, and luscious libations! Or why not wine the afternoon away at the Tipsy High Tea at Spring Bluff, where you’ll be treated to seasonal, bite-sized eats and spring-inspired cocktails all served in a gorgeous, Insta-worthy location overlooking the picturesque gardens. 

Be sure to top it all off with a film set under the stars or explore the shimmering Night Garden, which is set to illuminate Toowoomba’s blooming botanic gardens.
