Toowoomba - The Garden City

Located on the edge of the Great Dividing range, Toowoomba City has been recognised by national media as "the best place to live in Australia". Toowoomba has a rapidly growing population of some 85,000 people, many of whom have moved to Toowoomba because of its unique urban rural lifestyle.

The city boasts a wide variety of international and Australian restaurants from Thai and Italian to seafood. If time permits, there are a number of tourist attractions such as picnic point and the Jondaryan Woolshed which are well worth a visit.

University of Southern Queensland

The University of Southern Queensland is located in the south-west Toowoomba suburb of Darling Heights. The University has some 12,500 students, many of whom are drawn regionally from throughout South East Queensland and internationally from South East Asia.

The Japanese Gardens on the Campus provide a wonderful haven for those wanting to escape for a while.
