Welcome to Queensland’s top country getaway destination!
In our very special part of the world you’ll experience a warm welcome and an opportunity to share our authentic way of life.
Starting just 90mins drive from Brisbane, the region is rich in agriculture and industry, and takes in Toowoomba and the Darling Downs, Warwick and Surrounds, the Granite Belt and the Western Country — an area stretching from the south to Expedition National Park in the north, from Dalby in the east to St George and Bollon in the west.
Toowoomba offers a cosmopolitan-country vibe and all the amenities you’d expect of a regional city. You’ll also find a network of sizable towns and service centres such as Warwick, St George, Kingaroy, Dalby and Stanthorpe, as well as peaceful townships and quaint hamlets.
A diverse range of experiences are in store: from enjoying Toowoomba’s parks and gardens, restaurants, laneway bars and coffee culture to walking the granite trails of Girraween National Park; from fresh water fishing in wild rivers to soaking up the atmosphere in our Western Country pubs; from tasting local produce and award winning wines in the Granite Belt to sitting on the fence at the thrill-a-minute country cattle sale — it’s all uniquely Southern Queensland Country and it’s all within easy reach.
And you won’t find strangers here… just friends you haven’t met yet! With locals as colourful as our legendary sunsets, you’ll discover a friendly place where there’s time to take your time. Here you can slow down and re-connect with nature and with each other.
