MAYOR Paul Antonio took great delight in pushing the plunger to start an impressive fireworks display that farewelled 2012 and welcomed in the New Year.

He reflected on the beauty of his surrounds as crowds watched pyrotechnics light up the Queens Park sky.

"I think we have got to back up the bus a little bit every now and then and realise what we have here," Cr Antonio said.

Seeing how families gathered among the rows of trees strengthened his respect for the people who designed the park.

"It sort of enforces the area of Queens Park as a great venue for families.

"It was a brilliant night for Toowoomba."

Cr Antonio said celebrating the Christmas and New Year's period was not only about religious beliefs but also about families and bringing people together.

He started his own New Year yesterday with a family lunch at Millmerran.

"They (the fireworks) were a great way to send off 2012 and a great way to welcome a year that offers so much for Toowoomba."
