Located in the heart of Toowoomba’s CBD, the State Rose Garden offers a large collection of rose varieties and is absolutely perfect for your special day. The formal gardens are adorned with over 140 rose varieties and the park provides a stunning backdrop for wedding ceremonies.
Toowoomba is home to a number of stunning parks, and if you are considering holding your wedding at one of these parks, formally booking your nominated park is one of the best ways to ensure that no other booked events or weddings take place at the same time.
Bookings aren’t required for wedding photos, however, if a couple has booked their ceremony, they will have right of way to hold their wedding. Wedding receptions are not permitted in the parks.
