‘Rose and Rodeo Capital of Australia’

Warwick on Queensland's Darling Downs is a major rural town with wonderful pioneering architecture, wide streets and many recreational activities for residents. Download the Historic Building Trail file below to get more information on the many historic homes and public buildings in region.

The City of Warwick rose (Arofuto) is planted throughout the parks in the town and blooms during the annual Rose and Rodeo Festival held each October. West of Warwick is the Leslie Dam popular with locals for sailing, fishing, swimming, picnics, and skiing. Queen Mary waterfalls and Cunninghams Gap also make pleasant day trips.
 

The Australian Rough Riders Association has made Warwick their headquarters in keeping with the long history of rodeo riding in the town. The first rodeo was held here in the 1860's on the Canning Downs.
