Fun at the Toowoomba Show
The Royal Toowoomba Show is a fantastic event held annually at the Royal Toowoomba Showgrounds. The first Toowoomba Show was in 1860! Back then, the show was mostly an agricultural event with the focus being on livestock judging, equestrian events, wood chopping and more. All these things still take place at the show but it now fosters more of a carnival feel, making it the perfect place to take the kids for entertainment.
