Recently named Queensland’s most liveable city, Toowoomba is coming of age, shedding its skin as simply a large country town.

Positioned on top of the Great Dividing Range, just over an hour west of Brisbane, the Garden City has a proud history in education, with a myriad of top-performing schools, and the world-class University of Southern Queensland.

The shopping centres and amenities rival those in any capital city, while the booming resources industry has seen a major injection in jobs to the region in recent years.

With a growing population of 130,000 people, the city’s cultural diversity is also maturing.

Renowned events like the Carnival of Flowers combined with a proud cultural and sporting history have helped put Toowoomba on the map, while perennial attractions like the grand Empire Theatre have kept it there.

The Toowoomba Region is also a destination you can take on the world, from Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport. The sky is literally the limit from Wellcamp as businesses, tourists and residents take advantage of this first class accessibility.
