2020 Christmas Wonderland

Toowoomba's Christmas Wonderland began with the dream of creating an event that the whole community could come to and experience the joy and wonder of Christmas. This year marks the 18th year since its inception by the Burstow family.

We look forward to seeing thousands of people at this year's event in support of our three major beneficiaries Lifeline Darling Downs & South West Qld Ltd, the Toowoomba Hospital Foundation and the Toowoomba Hospice Association Inc.
