How to access Carnival of Flowers competition maps

THE Chronicle Garden Competition gardens attract thousands of people each year during the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers.

Visitors and residents are able to tour the gardens and chat to home owners about the years and months of hard work that have gone into creating the award-winning gardens.

Tens of thousands of people from all across the country will be in town to check out the work of our passionate green thumbs over 10-days.

The gardens will be open to the public from Friday, September 20 to Sunday, September 29.

To make it easier for those wanting to check out the gardens, The Chronicle has compiled eight interactive online maps, 10 printable PDFs, and a digital edition of the entire The Chronicle Garden Competition Guide.

There is an 84-page digital edition of the Chronicle Garden Competition Visitor Guide, you can view online here.

In the guide, you'll find maps to the winning gardens, stories on the gardeners behind the work, useful event guides, gardening advice and more.

All residential gardens are open during the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers period, and entry is free.
