The Chinchilla Botanic Parkland is a $5.9 million project co-funded by the Western Downs Regional Council and the Queensland Government, with Council delivering the project. Spanning 4.2 hectares between Canaga and Wambo Streets, the Parkland will boast state-of-the-art water treatment and irrigation systems with solar panels powering the entire site.

The long-awaited project was first announced in 2016, stemming from a community vision that has origins as far back the 1970’s. Set to become a signature destination for community events and entertainment across the region, the Chinchilla Botanic Parkland will add to the beauty, heritage and liveability of the Western Downs.

The Chinchilla Botanic Parkland is a long-term vision, with total site development taking place over multiple stages in the next five to ten years.
