As it happened the afternoon was busy and we drove up on Saturday morning. (Toowoomba is less then an hour and a half from home, so not a huge trek).
We detoured to see Spring Bluff (which is self-proclaimed as the most beautiful railway station in SE Queensland). And yes, it is lovely!
From there we drove up to Toowoomba, making a couple of op-shop stops and wandering around the markets, before enjoying our picnic.
I had Erin pose near the little vintage van because it was the same as the one I decorated for her (and Nissa) many years ago. The story of that van, is here.
We viewed the Queens Park gardens and then those at Laurel Bank Park (where I exclaimed "look at the wisteria" and Erin heard "look at the posterior")! By 3ish, we decided it was time for afternoon tea and a rest so farewelled Toowoomba and drove across to our accommodation at Crows Nest.
