Toowoomba is a city of 165,168 located 125 km (78 miles) west of Queensland's capital city Brisbane (by road). It is renowned for its natural beauty, spacious gardens and stately homes.
In recent years, the city has attracted substantial investments from the private sector in important infrastructure projects including the Brisbane West Airport (to the west of Toowoomba) and the Toowoomba range bypass.
The city offers a number of excellent private schools and real estate is significantly less expensive than the Gold Coast or Brisbane.
