The view is spectacular. The waterfall is beautiful and the walking tracks are well maintained. The gardens and parks are amazing. The cafe is lovely and the kids playground is just sensational. Like most of Toowoomba this place is a gem.
If you are looking for a kid friendly place to have a picnic or BBQ then Toowoomba's Picnic Point Parkland is definitely the place to go. Breathtaking panoramic views. Swings for the kids to play on, a walk down to a man-made waterfall and the gardens are so beautifully kept. Perfect for photos of the family. There is the biggest Australian Flag up there too - visible for miles.
An amazing park with great amenities and trails. One of the best places to spend the day with your family having a picnic. Highly recommend the trails as they are well maintained and have good signage. Other highlights include the huge flagpole, the view and the playgrounds for the kids.
A stunning view of just about everything! Nice to walk around as well. Scenery is breathtaking. Nice waterfall, kid’s playgrounds and a bandstand that artists and bands play at on weekends. Function centre looks good, great views. Nice day out for the whole family
Picnic Point Lookout And Parkland has some interesting information on why Australia is called the land down under?
Australia is known as 'the land Down Under' for its position in the southern hemisphere. The discovery of Australia began when European explorers searched for land under the continent of Asia. Before Australia was discovered, it was known as Terra Australis Incognita the unknown southern land.
