South Queensland Country is a land of contrasts where vast mountain ranges carve up great divides between lush rolling hills and rainforests embracing this piece of farmland country.
Start at the bustling city of Toowoomba and embrace a slice of pioneer history served with a generous dose of refreshing mountain air and country hospitality.
Further west you will find excellent fishing and stunning natural parks in Western Downs, and a chance to re-connect with a lifestyle long forgotten by city dwellers. Visit the Rose and Rodeo capital of Warwick in October and watch Australia’s best horse compete for glory, explore heritage sites and buildings, and relax with a beer in front of the open fire place at the town pub.
Keen bushwalkers and birdwatchers should explore the region’s many national parks and walking tracks - offering ample opportunities for encounters with some of Queensland’s more elusive wildlife, and enough waterfalls to keep you occupied for a lifetime.
The southern part is home to the giant boulders of Girraween National park and the Granite Belt highlands offers avid foodies top-shelf wine and gourmet food experiences from local vineyards and paddocks.
