Warwick

Urban

Nestled on the banks of the Condamine River lies the “Rose and Rodeo Capital’ of Warwick, and host to the annual October hoedown of Australia’s elite bull riders.

Visit the Australian Rodeo Heritage Centre 156-kilometres south-west of Brisbane, dating buck jumping back to 1857. Continue on a tour of the town’s 150 year old historic buildings including preserved churches, cottages, schools and railway stations – in the day when locals travelled by horse and cart – and spot the two memorials of Jackie Howe, a famous sheep shearer from Blackall.

Stop by the operating steam railway locomotive and plan your trip with one of the monthly runs from Warwick to Clifton or Wallangarra. Each Wednesday there’s excitement at the local pig and calf sales, while the month of July is reserved for the Jumpers and Jazz festival and the town’s deciduous trees are dressed with custom-knitted jumpers and live music fills the streets.

Get outdoors on the Condamine River or Connolly Dam south-east of Warwick, or at nearby Leslie Dam for biting yellowbelly, silver perch and murray cod. Hike the Goomburra section of the World Heritage-listed Main Range National Park north-east of Warwick, spotting koalas and birdlife amongst cascading waterfalls and rainforest.
