Warwick, a commanding regional town, is on the western side of the Great Dividing Range and near the headwaters of the Condamine River. It has long been characterised by elegant churches and some grand private schools, giving the centre a certain monumentalism. Situated in the southern Darling Downs, it is 140 km south-west of Brisbane.

Settled in 1840 in the highlands of Southern Downs, Warwick is known as the ‘Rose and Rodeo’ capital of Australia.

With some of the state’s best preserved heritage buildings, you will find churches cottages and railway stations hailing back to a time when Cobb & Co’s horse-drawn carriages ruled the roads.

Heritage aside, the town’s biggest claim to fame is the annual Rose and Rodeo festival held on the last weekend of October every year. Tracing back to a buckjumping contest which started in 1857, the event brings the best riders in the country together to compete for some of Australia’s richest campdrafting prizes.
