Beautiful garden display for the carnival. Not open when we popped in on the way to Toowoomba late Friday, bit wonderful gardens to wander around anyway. Have to visit another time to see the train.

Called in for a coffee, even thou the flowers weren't planted like they are in September. The coffee was nice and warm as the temp had dropped. This place is very quant and comfortable and well worth a visit any time of the year.

Accidentally discovered this little gem.. heritage railway station with beautiful grounds and garden. There is also a cafe (but I didn’t order anything so can’t review). It is a short drive from Toowoomba or Highfields that is well worth it.

Visit during September for a very good display of flowers. Have a snack, coffee or meal at the cafe. Be aware this is still a working railway line, so be aware of trains.

The only cost is your food and drink. $15 -$30 a meal. This is about the usual cost of eating out.
