Toowoomba, one of Queensland’s largest regional urban centres, is well known as the ‘Garden City.’ South West Queensland is famous for fine wines, fresh produce and stunning wildflowers. Toowoomba provides a range of dining choices, wineries and vineyards, gourmet delis and cafes. At night, there are hotels, clubs and bars to choose from and venues offering live music, poll tables and karaoke.
It is the business and service hub for the entire region and is also home to one of the state’s largest university campuses — the University of Southern Queensland.
