Toowoomba is a lovely town, atop the Great Dividing Range, is known as the Gateway to the West as it lowers onto the foothills and to the open plains. It is a big town with outback country charm.
Toowoomba, once a regional city mainly servicing the rural sector, is fast becoming the cosmopolitan hub of southern Queensland with fine restaurants, cafes, antique shops and modern shopping centres both in the centre of the city and in surburban areas. Its architectural heritage is varied and interesting. The Australian Gospel Music Festival was held here in April 1999 and was a huge popular and musical success.

Toowoomba is located aproximately 21/2 hours drive west from the southern Queensland coast.

    The Japanese gardens with it's flowers looks very lovely, Susie. Toowoomba looks like a beautiful place for hiking though the name itself is odd?lol
