Animals of all Shapes & Sizes


The brilliantly coloured Macaws from South America are squarking, the snappy Crocodiles are snapping, the mischievous Monkeys are jumping and the lions are growling. Start your day experiencing The Darling Downs Zoo. Be amazed at the vast array of beautiful and ugly, dangerous and gentle, big and small, but always fascinating, wildlife... and all just a short drive from Toowoomba. Open 9am - 4pm.

On the way back to town take a short detour into Cambooya, a quaint country town just south of Toowoomba, to enjoy a good old fashioned pub lunch or a cold drink. The Bull & Barley Inn has been restored to its former grandeur. Experience the authentic 1900’s old world atmosphere, with displays of interesting historic photographs.

Spend the afternoon at the Toowoomba Royal Show - there is so much to do and see. Stay for dinner and if the kids are still awake - enjoy the spectacular!!


Take a day to slow down, breathe deeply and immerse yourself in the delights of the country. This is our lifestyle... and now you can experience a day in the life of Felton Farmers! We look forward to seeing you at The Felton Food Festival.
