Stuff to do these school holidays

December 10, 2019

Keep your kids amused and amazed during the school holidays with a family visit to Toowoomba. This sensational city is truly as fun as its name, and you’ll find gads of free things to do in Toowoomba with kids these school holidays.

Explore the Rainforest

Rainforest fans will fall in love with Ravensbourne National Park, as it serves up the best remaining example of the glorious rainforest that once covered the region. Marvel at the colossal trees, gurgling streams and a bastion of birds.

Loved our little getaway. Bush walks with my babes, spotting birds, pockets full or rocks and handfuls of colourful leaves 🌲🌴🍃🍂 #bushwalks #outandabout #thefourthatiadore #collections #backtonature #ravensbournenationalpark

Marvel at Magnificence

Panoramic mountaintop views, a playground, picnic areas and even a café are among the attractions at Picnic Point Parklands. You’ll also find the perfectly manicured Picnic Point Square, a magnificent waterfall and numerous walking trails.

Embrace Ultimate Tranquility

The Japanese Garden at the University of Southern Queensland gives you and your kids an optimum dose of tranquility, along with a chance to feed the resident swans, ducks, geese and fish. As the largest Japanese stroll garden in Australia, the 3 kilometres of paths lead you past a central lake, mountain stream and waterfall, artfully arranged rock formations, and more than 200 species of native Japanese and Australian plants and trees.

Get Artsy

More than 80 murals grace the exterior walls of alleyways and buildings throughout the city, making Toowoomba home to one of the biggest outdoor galleries in the country. Pack a picnic lunch, sketchbook and pencils so you can spend the first half of the afternoon absorbing all the street art, and the second half creating your own artwork over lunch.
