Bring something warm
You're on the ranges, and you're inland. It can get chilly. Plenty here and a big range. Toowoomba enjoys modern conveniences. Oh, so many photo opportunites. A truly pretty location. No beach, but there is a pool. And with all places in Qld, its a good idea to have sunscreen and a hat. Something to do on Sunday.
CHURCHES & CATHEDRALS IN TOOWOOMBA
A drive around the streets of Toowoomba, and you will see many lovely Churches and Cathedrals.
The one in my photo is St. Patrick's Cathedral.
The present blue-stone Cathedral is the third church under the name St Patrick's to stand on the site in James Street, Toowoomba. The first was erected in 1863. This small wooden Church-school soon became too small for the ever growing congregation and was expanded in 1880, only to be burnt down the day after completion.
The one today is built in neo-gothic style, and was officially blessed and opened on the 17th March, 1889 - St Patrick's Day.
Amidst a crowd of over 7000 people, the new Cathedral was opened on 24th March, 1935.

"Sunday evening at Toowoomba"
It's March - so I would say it's Autumn right now. At 7.00 p.m. the streets are dark and the quietness in the city is also because, well, it's Sunday evening! I'm on a 1 hour pit-stop... Just got down from the Greyhound bus and the first landmark I see is the Cinema.
"It's what I'd call Cafe Street"
Quiet as it is, there's still life at night where food is served! Segafredo's happens to be my favourite coffee and what a pleasant surprise to see a signboard saying a church band's playing tonight... cos it's Sunday!
"Malaysian Chinese food!"
Wow, not that I ate there... Being Malaysian Chinese, I felt right at home... well, except for the fact that the weather in Toowoomba's much cooler than hot hot Malaysia.
