Toowoomba (nicknamed 'The Garden City') is a regional city in the Darling Downs region in the Australian state of Queensland. It is west of Queensland's capital city Brisbane by road. The estimated urban population of Toowoomba as of June 2017 was 135,631. A university and cathedral city, it hosts the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers each September and national championship events for the sports of mountain biking and motocross. There are more than 150 public parks and gardens in Toowoomba. It has developed into a regional centre for business and government services. It is also referred to as the capital of the Darling Downs.[1] Toowoomba is served by Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport and the smaller Toowoomba City Aerodrome.

Toowoomba is the second most populous inland city in the country after the national capital of Canberra. In the last five years, it has also become one of the fastest growing towns in the country, with low unemployment and an increase in infrastructure leading to employment generation.
