Known as the ‘Rose and Rodeo City’ Warwick is located 160 kilometres from South West of Brisbane amongst the fertile rolling hills of the Darling Downs atop the Great Dividing Range. It has some of Queensland’s oldest and finest sandstone buildings and roses can be seen showcased along the city’s main streets as well as in it’s parks throughout spring.
Attracting visitors to Warwick in the winter is the city’s annual ‘Jumpers and Jazz’ festival – where the streets come alive with the trees dressed in knitted jumpers and jazz can be heard all over the place. The last full weekend in October is when the famous Warwick Rodeo is held, which attracts competitors and spectators from all over Australia as well as internationally.
There is so much to see and do in Warwick with natural attractions such as scenic walks, parks and gardens, historical sites such as heritage buildings and landmarks, galleries, museums and collections, sports and recreation facilities as well as plenty of restaurants featuring locally famed produce.
