Today we drove down the Range to visit Spring Bluff which is a little train station tucked away halfway down the Murphys Creek Road which many Aussies may have heard about during the 2011 floods due to the loss of life and damage done to that area when the 'inland tsunami' hit Toowoomba. During the Carnival of Flowers there are diesel train rides from the Toowoomba railway station to Spring Bluff and the tickets are always sold out well in advance.

As I mentioned in my last post we visited another of major attractions in our CBD on Thursday ....Queens Park.... although the correct name now is Queens Park Botanic Gardens. It was a dreary day with rain threatening much of the time we were there but fortunately it didn't arrive until the evening which was great for the many visitors to the gardens who were viewing them before the big rush started today.

As our Carnival of Flowers starts tomorrow and it will be really busy in all the parks and competition gardens in our city, some friends and I did a tour of the beautiful and quirky Laurel Bank Park yesterday. The theme this year is 'Music in the Park' and while we were busy taking photos the gardeners were equally busy sprucing up the gardens for the rush of visitors at the weekend.
