Saturday Morning Drive to Toowoomba: Exploring the Best of the City


Are you looking for a perfect Saturday getaway? Look no further than a drive to Toowoomba, a charming city known for its stunning gardens, vibrant markets, and impressive street art scene. Join us as we embark on a memorable journey filled with delicious food, local markets, breathtaking blooms, and more.


Breakfast at Urth Cafe and Co


Our day began with an early start as we made our way up the picturesque Toowoomba Range. Upon reaching the city, we headed straight to Urth Cafe and Co for a scrumptious breakfast. As we settled down in the cozy ambiance, we couldn't resist ordering their famous big breakfast, complete with all our favorites. We also indulged in some mouthwatering egg benedict while our furry friend, Shari, enjoyed a special treat - a delightful puppuccino. The food was simply amazing, and we were impressed by the friendly staff and pleasant atmosphere that surrounded us.


Cob and Co Markets: A Haven for Foodies and Shopaholics


After a satisfying breakfast, we decided to explore the nearby Cob and Co Markets. This vibrant marketplace offers a plethora of locally grown produce, delicious meats, boutique wines and spirits, aromatic coffee, handcrafted artworks, alluring candles, natural skincare products, toys, pet supplies, and even live music to keep you entertained. It was a treasure trove of unique and high-quality items, and we couldn't resist picking up a few goodies to take home.


Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers: A Blooming Spectacle


From the markets, we made our way towards Queens Park to experience the annual Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers. Walking through the park, we were captivated by the sight of thousands of blooms, creating a kaleidoscope of colors and fragrances. It was a true feast for the senses, and we spent hours exploring the different garden displays and taking in the natural beauty that surrounded us.


Unleashing Fun at Queens Park


As we ventured further into Queens Park, we stumbled upon the unfenced dog off-leash area near Godsail Street entry. It was the perfect spot for our furry friend, Shari, to stretch her legs and socialize with other friendly dogs. It was heartwarming to see our pup so happy and carefree as she ran and played in the spacious grassy area. This was a delightful break for us as well, giving us a chance to relax and enjoy the picturesque surroundings.


Exploring Toowoomba's CBD and Street Art Scene


Leaving the park behind, we made our way towards Toowoomba's CBD, eager to discover some of the city's impressive street art. To our delight, the streets were adorned with vibrant murals and captivating artworks, each telling its own unique story. We took our time strolling through the streets, capturing photos and marveling at the talent on display.


A Tranquil Oasis: Japanese-Style University Garden


Our final stop for the day was the Japanese-style university garden, a hidden gem that allowed us to soak in a sense of tranquility. The garden boasted a picturesque mountain-style stream, elegant bridges, and hills covered in blooming azaleas. It was a peaceful escape, and we took our time exploring the paths, admiring the serene beauty that surrounded us.
