Travel Tips for Toowoomba

INSIDE ST. LUKE'S CHURCH

by balhannah

On walking inside St. Lukes and looking towards the Nave, I thought the many arches built in french gothic style, were beautiful. Altogether, there are 9 bays, with 9 arches.

The High Altar took my attention. It is beautifully carved, done by serveral women, if like me, I always think of men doing something like this.
The Agnus Dei is in the centre, flanked by the Crown of Thorns and the Crown of Glory, it really is magnificent.

Behind it is the Griffith window, a large central window which is a replica of a famous window in Chartres Cathedral in France, where it is known as "la Belle Verriere."

Not just the City of Flowers - Love the Trees

"Carnival of Flowers"

Famous for its annual September Carnival of Flowers, Toowoomba is located an hour and a half's drive west of Brisbane which makes it easily accessed during a day trip by road.

Derivation of the name"Toowoomba":
The derivation of the name Toowoomba is ambiguous, though the most widely accepted theory is that it's more or less a pronunciation of the Aboriginal word for 'The Swamp'.

Toowoomba's origin dates back to 1827 when Allan Cunningham, an English explorer discovered a vast expanse of rich farming land which he named the 'Darling Downs' after then Governor of New South Wales, Sir Ralph Darling. A settlement formed at a place called 'The Springs' but a drought in 1850 saw residents move to 'The Swamp' located a few miles to the north east. One of the re-settlers was Thomas Alford. In 1852, he established a house and shop which he named ' Toowoomba'. (according to the official Australian place names study site there are other guesses about the derivation. )
