Toowoomba

Toowoomba, known as ‘The Garden City’ is located in Southern Queensland, approximately 130 kilometres west of the capital of Brisbane. The city has a population of approximately 130,000 people and is second only to Canberra as Australia’s largest inland city. Toowoomba has a pleasant climate with warm summers and cool winters. Established in 1860, Toowoomba City is a charming mix of distinguished buildings, elegant parks and breathtaking views of the Lockyer Valley.

Due to its elevation, even on the hottest Queensland days the residents of Toowoomba can relax with a cool evening breeze. In fact, you’ll feel all of the seasons here: there’s a true winter with fog and frost, an autumn of golden falling leaves, and a spring of non-stop colour.

The houses here are distinctive and filled with character, with charming colonial styles and Federation homes, as well delightful Queensland bungalows. While there are some apartments and units close to the CBD, as you move further from the city centre, single storey brick homes are more common.

Toowoomba City has long been famed for its beauty, but these days it’s also known for its excellent quality of life, low unemployment and great schools. With its cool mountain air, distinguished style and old world charm, Toowoomba locals are sure to feel on top of the world.

Toowoomba has been famous for its high quality schools since the first was built here over 150 years ago. Combined with the abundance of lush parkland and peaceful streets that are perfect for bike rides, it’s a great place to raise a family. With the University of Southern Queensland just down the road, and a few more apartments located here than there are in other parts of Toowoomba, the city is perfect for students. The city has also welcomed a new community of mining workers, who travel each day to nearby coal and gas mines.

Packing a picnic or riding a bike is a great way to take advantage of this stunning city: take in tea houses, B&Bs, galleries, cafes, ordered gardens or natural wilderness. Toowoomba City is great for history-buffs: there are about 50 heritage listed sites in the CBD and inner city suburbs alone.

With the Wellcamp Airport and a second range crossing underway Toowoomba is easily accessible to the rest of the state and country.
