Toowoomba is well-known for its scenic beauty and tranquil atmosphere. Toowoomba is also known as the Garden City because it is home to hundreds of parks and gardens. You will undoubtedly enjoy discovering and exploring its parks and gardens.
But wait, there’s more! The city has a thriving urban coffee culture and street art scene, and it hosts various events, including the city’s annual Carnival of Flowers spring festival. Toowoomba’s Christmas Wonderland 2022, a yearly Charity Christmas lights display, will be on display this December.
Toowoomba’s Christmas Wonderland 2022
The Christmas Wonderland in Toowoomba is ideal for the entire family. It will take place from December 3 to 24 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Botanic Gardens on Lindsay St. You can enter by gold coin donation or ‘Tap & Go’ payment at the entry points.
The Toowoomba Hospital Foundation, The Toowoomba Hospice, Lifeline Darling Downs and South West Queensland are all beneficiaries of Toowoomba’s Christmas Wonderland. All donations will be distributed equally to local organisations, including the primary beneficiaries.
Burstow’s Christmas Wonderland, Toowoomba’s favourite Christmas event, debuted in 2003. Don and Trevor Burstow wanted to put on a beautiful light show and serve supper with prizes for the kids. In 2007, the event became Toowoomba’s Christmas Wonderland after their Christmas lights display had become a Toowoomba tradition.
Don and Trevor Burstow officially handed over the responsibility of hosting Toowoomba’s Christmas Wonderland to the Lions Club of Toowoomba West in January 2008. The Lions Club of Toowoomba West has coordinated Toowoomba’s Christmas Wonderland display since 2008, raising funds for numerous local organisations.
In December 2021, over 66,000 people visited Toowoomba’s Christmas Wonderland. This year Toowoomba’s Christmas Wonderland offers a variety of entertainment each night.

- High Country Community Band
- St Mary’s College Concert Band and Choir
