WE’D LIKE TO EXTEND A WARM WELCOME TO YOU This booklet is for your convenience and we ask that you consider supporting these local businesses that are proud to be working with Quest Toowoomba in offering you superior service.

In the heart of the CBD, Quest Toowoomba is an elegantly modern apartment hotel, perfectly placed for business and leisure travellers. Its lobby and reception feature the original stained glass windows and the beautiful sandstone façade of Margaret Street’s former Church of Christ, circa 1904. The six storeys adjoining offer a choice of superbly furnished, fully-equipped serviced studios and one, two and three bedroom apartments. Spacious, modern and light-filled, with soaring views over glorious Queens Park or the sparkling lights of the CBD, each room offers the flexibility and convenience to work or play, self-cater or eat in, with added appeal of secure undercover parking, access to the hotel’s gymnasium and free Wi-Fi. Location is key – Quest is just a short stroll from shopping, bars and dining of Margaret and Ruthven Streets, Walton Stores and Grand Central, the lush green spaces and magnificent gardens of Queens Park and Toowoomba’s cultural hub, the Empire Theatre. Enjoy your stay! Kind Regards The Team at Quest Toowoomba

AT YOUR LEISURE Whatever brings you here and however long you choose to stay, we welcome you to our beautiful region and believe you’ll find many reasons to return to the Garden City. From exploring gracious parks and gardens to touring Australia’s largest outdoor street art gallery in the city’s hidden laneways, there’s so much to see and do in and around Toowoomba. Getting here is easy with direct flights from Sydney, Melbourne and Townsville into Wellcamp Airport.

The city sits high atop the Great Dividing Range and there’s nowhere better to appreciate the views than from Picnic Point or enjoy the outdoors at Queens Park, the fragrant rose garden at Laurel Bank Park or find inner peace at the tranquil Ju Raku En Japanese Garden at the University of Southern Queensland. Our award-winning Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers is a spectacular Spring event not to be missed. Catch some world-class entertainment at The Empire Theatre, or discover local produce at My Local Feast Farmers Market at The Empire each Wednesday afternoon or at Cobb + Co Museum on Saturday mornings (check out the museum collection while you’re there). Take a country drive to explore the trails of nearby Ravensbourne or Crows Nest National Parks; taste local wine at Preston Peak cellar door, dine at microregion eatery Emeraude Bistro at Hampton or a cold drink at a country pub or keep the kids happy at Darling Downs Zoo or The Woolshed at Jondaryan.
