Saturday we planned to take a picnic lunch and drive around to some more beautiful spots in the town of Toowoomba.

First Robert wanted to take me to a few more of the classic old Queensland style homes. One of these can be rented for special occasions

such as parties, dinners and weddings. It is called "Gabbinbar House" and was once a private home and estate. Wandering around the grounds I said to Dwain,

can you imagine living in a place like this about 100 years ago and wandering around the grounds?? It must have been fantastic.

Then we visited the University of South Queensland which reminded me of the University of Victoria with the beautiful gardens surrounding the buildings.

This is also where we wandered through the Japanese gardens.

Beautiful place! I noticed the lovely pink blossoms on the trees and flowers in the gardens. Spring blooms for you there, fall colours for us. The maples along the drive into TCR are just starting to change now.
