A wide-ranging program of activities is planned to engage young people across the Toowoomba Region for Queensland Youth Week 2023.

Held from 11 to 17 April, Queensland Youth Week is an annual celebration of young people aged 12-25, and an opportunity to recognise the positive contributions they make across our Region.

This year’s program will kick off with laser skirmish, sporting activities, art, photography and electronics workshops during the first week of school holidays.

All activities are completely free and will tour a number of regional communities, including Clifton, Pittsworth, Millmerran, Cecil Plains, Oakey, Kingsthorpe, Goombungee, Crows Nest, Westbrook, and Highfields.

Toowoomba Regional Council Environment and Community Committee chair Councillor James O’Shea said Youth Week was a chance for young people to learn new skills, connect in healthy ways, and have some fun.

“I think it’s important to emphasise that our Regional Youth Leaders will again take a leading role in delivering this year’s program.

“We’re very proud of these young volunteers and the efforts they make to ensuring our programs are welcoming and inclusive.”

The celebrations will culminate with a Youth Week event at Toowoomba City Library on Thursday, 13 April.

In addition to free pizza, young people between 12-18 will be able to enjoy a host of activities, from laser skirmish and tabletop/board games to clay creations, karaoke, and anime/manga.
