Picnic Point, Toowoomba

Toowoomba ‘The Garden City’, is a south-east Queensland city famous for its annual Carnival of Flowers, held in Spring. But Autumn is when it really shines in its full splendor.
Situated on the edge of the Great Dividing Range, 700 metres above sea level and with lower Autumn and Winter temperatures than the surrounding area, Toowoomba benefits from a quite unique climate. All over the city there is a significant number of deciduous trees from around the world, giving a singular display of autumn yellow, orange and red among the green foliage.
Being there at this season is a privilege and watching sunrise at Picnic Point, just on the edge of the Great Dividing Range, is as much astonishing as freezing.
