Blooming Victories and Colourful Delights:

Hello, garden enthusiasts, flower lovers, Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers fans and our wonderful guest!

We’ve got some exciting news to share, and we can hardly contain our excitement.

Crows Nest Tourist Park has clinched the prestigious first place in the 2023 Carnival of Flowers Chronicle Garden Competition in the Commercial category!

Can we get a drumroll, please?

Drumroll 🥁

There it is! 

After four and a half years of love, sweat, and green-thumb magic, we’ve been recognised as the crème de la crème of Toowoomba’s commercial gardens.

To say we’re thrilled is an understatement.

The feeling is more like a chorus of birds serenading us on a sunny spring morning!

Speaking of spring, isn’t it just the most magical season? 

The entire Toowoomba Region comes alive with a riot of colours and fragrances during the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers. Picture yourself surrounded by blooming gardens, each one more vibrant and unique than the last. From cheerful daffodils to elegant roses, it’s like Mother Nature herself decided to throw a garden party, and we’re the hosts!

At Crows Nest Tourist Park, we believe in creating spaces where people feel not just welcome but absolutely at home. Our gardens are not just a pretty sight but an experience waiting to be embraced. With each new cabin we create a new and very unique garden.

You can come over, explore each garden’s distinct charm, beware of the ornamental guard dog, have a giggle at some of the quirky additions.

Bring your camera, because our gardens are Instagram-worthy in every sense. Take photos, tag us, and let your friends know about our park!

We’ve seen our gardens work their magic in surprising ways. They’ve enticed groups to enjoy lunches amidst our gardens. Our function center has welcomed guests to sit and relax. It’s proof that nature has a way of bringing people together.

When you’re done exploring our little corner of paradise, don’t forget to venture into the surrounding high country and Crows Nest QLD we have so much to see and do and the food in Crows Nest is the best!!

There’s a world of natural wonder waiting to be discovered, and we’re here to be your gateway to it all.

We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to those who’ve been a part of this beautiful journey:
