About Toowoomba

Toowoomba is a picturesque mountain city located about 130km west of the State capital of Brisbane in south-east Queensland.

Clinging to the edge of the Great Dividing Range escarpment at 700 metres above sea-level, the city affords breathtaking views of Table Top Mountain and the Lockyer Valley region across the east.

The gateway to the Surat Basin, Toowoomba has more than 90,000 residents and is Australia’s largest inland regional city and the commercial economic hub of the Darling Downs.

The city serves a growing population in excess of 250,00 people and provides products and services to meet the increasing needs of Queensland’s booming mining industry.

Toowomba City covers itself about 117 sq km with its centre at the intersection of the busy Warrego and New England highways.

Toowoomba’s climate is pleasant with temperatures averaging a cool 5°C to 16°C in winter and a mild 17°C to 27°C in summer.

Dubbed Australia’s ‘Garden City’, Toowoomba and its residents take pride in their homes and gardens for the annual Carnival of Flowers in September, attracting thousands of locals, interstate and international vistors to the city.
