Event History

The 'Burstow's Christmas Wonderland' began in 2003 with the dream of creating an event that the whole community could come to and experience the joy and wonder of Christmas. They wanted to create a delightful display of lights and provide supper and free give a-ways for the children. 

Don and Trevor Burstow are very proud that this has grown beyond a 'Burstow's' event, becoming truly a Toowoomba event. 2007 saw the event re-named Toowoomba's Christmas Wonderland in recognition of the support Burstow's receive from the entire Toowoomba community. In January 2008 Don and Trevor Burstow officially passed the responsibility for hosting 'Toowoomba's Christmas Wonderland' to the Lions Club of Toowoomba West.  

Since 2008 The Lions Club of Toowoomba West has coordinated Toowoomba's Christmas Wonderland display every year up to and including December 2019.


Planning for the 2020 lights is already underway.

There are three  major beneficiaries: Lifeline Darling Downs & South West Queensland Limited: The Toowoomba Hospital Foundation: The Toowoomba Hospice.
