Things to Do This Mother’s Day in Toowoomba
Looking for ideas for Mother’s Day 2021 or wondering what should I do for Mother’s Day in Toowoomba?
This list will give you lots of good ideas for Mothers Day outings in Toowoomba.
Mail a hug
Get in early with this one and make a life-sized hug to send to Mum, Grandma, or other loved ones. Here’s how.
Mother’s Day picnic
Why not surprise mum with a beautiful picnic? It’s a great, budget friendly option, and you can keep your social distance too! Set up a picnic in your back garden and invite your mum to do the same, then toast each other from your own lawns and patios via Skype or another meeting software. It also allows the whole family to connect with one another without leaving your homes.
Send a meal
Check your mother’s favourite restaurant to see if they are offering a delivery service for Mother’s Day. If they are, you can SEND a meal for her to enjoy at home!
State Rose Garden Newtown Park
If you don’t fancy a walk or run, why not relax with your mum amongst the roses in Newtown Park, 1,500 of them! The State Rose Garden at Newtown Park is the perfect spot to enjoy a relaxing picnic with barbeques and picnic areas available amongst the beauty of the rosarium.

Spa Day for Mums
Going to a day spa is just not something a mum would normally do for herself. It’s too much of a luxury to have someone rub your feet, to wear a big fluffy robe, to sit in a room with candles and be treated like royalty. For many mums, it’s a quick route to mummy guilt and feeling that it’s money that should be spent on something else and not her own wellbeing. That’s why giving a mum or mum to be a day spa gift voucher works. It’s pretty much telling her to go and be treated like a queen with absolutely no guilt attached. She has no choice but to accept and use the voucher!

When: Whenever she wants!
Toowoomba Japanese Gardens
Perhaps your mum prefers the harmony of a Japanese garden? Why not take her for a picnic in the Toowoomba Japanese Gardens at the University of Southern Queensland where she can have a chance to relax amongst the Zen-like elements of the manicured gardens filled with streams and waterfalls, Japanese and Australian natives and manicured lawns.
Where: West St, Darling Heights
If you’re keen to take your mum somewhere to eat when restaurants reopen, Toowoomba has some great child friendly restaurants.
