a monthly round-up so you can plan ahead

You love our weekly round-ups, but what about all those events you keep missing?

We heard you, Toowoomba! And so we introduce today our new monthly round-up of what to do. Pulled from our constantly updated events calendar as well as some of our personal recommendations, we hope this will encourage you to put some plans in place and support local events and businesses – and stop missing out!



poke around some Secondhand Bookstores

As the weather starts to get a bit chillier, it’s time to prepare for cold nights when you absolutely do not want to go out. Secondhand bookstores were created for just this purpose. Grab a coffee to go, and spend just a few dollars stocking up your bookshelves. Take advantage of everyone Konmari-ing their homes, and pick up some bargains. We rounded up some of our local favourites to get your started.

support the inaugural Curious Arts Festival

This brand new arts festival is a mixture of free and ticketed events. The program includes comedy, dance, music, circus, workshops, film and family entertainment. Comedian Luke McGregor (from Rosehaven) is the headline act, and there’s plenty of local talent on show as well. Remember what we always say – if you want to see more festivals in Toowoomba, make sure you support the ones already out there!

see Kinky Boots at the empire theatre

At the end of March, Kinky Boots will light up the Empire’s stage for two weekends. The entire cast and crew is local, apart from one special guest who has been flown into town. The story is fun and heartwarming, the music is by Cyndi Lauper (!) and we’ve even got a chance for you to win your tickets.

sip champagne at the local Art Shows

Both Grammar and Glennie are hosting their art shows this month. The Glennie Art Show is first, featuring work from the school’s community of artists. Grammar’s is at the end of the month, and features 600 pieces by 200 artists from all around the world.

Crows Nest day trip

One Saturday this month, we highly recommend jumping in the car, turning up the music, and taking a drive up north. We spent our day browsing stunning French antiques, eating incredible brunches, tasting delicious wines, and doing a spot of shopping. You could, of course, skip straight to brunch, or straight to wine tasting, but we think it’s even better as a whole-day affair.

enjoy Jazz & Shiraz at preston peak

Preston Peak’s annual Jazz & Shiraz day is back this month. The day features local music, wine and cheese platters, and spectacular views (or, if the weather plays up, a lot of atmosphere!). It’s always a great afternoon out. Bring the crew, designate a driver, and settle in.

Mix up your workout

If you’re after some new inspiration now that we’re well and truly into the new year, we’ve rounded up some places that might get you back on track. We scoured the city for some fun classes that will help you shake off old habits and build new ones.
