Southern West - Queensland

Queenslands Southern West is not to be missed in your holiday itinerary with so much to discover and explore in the expanse of real Queensland country. With an incredible pioneering history that locals are happy to impart over a cold one in a classic Aussie pub, escaping the city has never been so refreshing. From the rolling plains in quaint rural townships to the dramatic mountains of the Great Dividing Range rising against the sky you will find bluer skies, rich landscapes cloaked in rainforest and pristine lakes and rivers waiting in the Southern West.

Stop and smell the roses in Toowoomba, Queenslands Garden City, with more than 150 public gardens and manicured parks on display. Spring in the city comes alive with a tapestry of vibrant colour during the celebration of the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers, all just 90 minutes from Brisbane. Toowoomba looks out over the coastal lowlands with waterfalls, walking tracks and a rich welcoming atmosphere.

Celebrate all four seasons as you warm yourself against the winter chill in front of a blazing fire with a glass of red and stand in awe at the wildflowers in spring. Sample delicious red apples, wander through rows of grape vines in summer and marvel at the mellow tones of autumn leaves falling. Mountain views and stunning sunsets are just a taste of the Southern West where wineries and welcomes go hand in hand.

The Bunya Mountains National Park should be on the list for gold fossicking and ancient rainforest exploration along with discovering precious bargains in antique shops of a bygone era that will be treasured forever. The wonderful residents who decide to call these towns their home make the experience real with their relaxed lifestyle and special warm hospitality, that can not be mirrored. The Southern West is unique and not to be missed but it is the people that make the difference giving the region its remarkable spirit.
