A Region rich in Australia’s pioneering spirit

From the early 1800s, when explorers first set their eyes upon the fertile land, the Toowoomba Region was destined to become one of Australia’s rural heartlands. Our history has been preserved throughout the Region in many of the historical locations and attractions.

Take a drive or pull on your walking shoes and step back in time to discover our diverse heritage.
