Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers

Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers 2012 started yesterday. As usual, there is a lot of flowers in Queens Park. Moreover, those family won The Chronicle Garden Competition. They opens their winning home gardens to the public.

But too bad, I don’t think I will have time to go! even though I had time, I missed their grand central floral parade which is held this afternoon. There were a lot of floral floats and street performers.

Date :

Taiwan Festival


There is a big event in our Chinese community.  That is Taiwan Festival which held on Today and Tomorrow in Upper Mt Gravatt Showgrounds. I went to there this afternoon, that is great. A lot of people went there too.

Taiwan Festival - That is busy!

When I entered the showgrounds, the scale of this event is quite big. I saw a lot of rides in there too! I think the kids would love them!

Moreover, there are a few counter to provide traditional Taiwanese Food, such as Cold Noodles and Tofu pudding.

I spent $2 to buy three fried cuttlefish balls, that was tasty!

Besides of food, this festival is about Taiwan. Traditional Taiwanese Performance is “must have” such as Taiwanese Puppet shows. I saw a part of that too!


This event is great.  But if you plan to go there, please aware that is hard to find a park spot in the showgrounds.
