Floral baskets hanging from hooks

Hanging Basket Display

6 September - 7 October 2024 

Queensland Museum Cobb+Co


Get ready to party among the petals! Now in full swing for its 11th year, the museum will burst into a botanical celebration during Toowoomba Carnival of flowers with our iconic Hanging Basket Display.

Discover a garden of delights with over 50 uniquely crafted floral hanging baskets, lovingly created by community organisations, individual, and schools. Each basket will be a lively tribute to the theme, ‘It’s a Party’, honouring the 75th birthday of the Grand Central Floral Parade.

Dive into the vibrant floral creations, marvel at the intricate details, and don’t forget to vote for your favourite in the People’s Choice Awards!

This event is proudly supported by Yates.
