Heritage architecture, stunning green spaces, and wonderful seasons are what make Toowoomba special. Riding high on the crest of the Great Diving Range, Toowoomba is the capital and indeed the ‘darling’ of Australia’s Darling Downs region. The city is aptly monikered 'Garden City’ because it is home to more than 150 public gardens, parks, and open green spaces. In fact, if you’re visiting the city in September, don’t miss experiencing the annual Carnival of Flowers. Toowoomba is also known as a cathedral city, houses well-preserved colonial-era architecture and many museums telling tales of Toowoomba’s rich colonial past. The best possible way to begin exploring this Australian gem is booking a Stayz vacation rental based on your requirements. Here are 10 amazing Stayz Toowoomba options that will leave you spoilt for choice.
