Welcome to a place you can meet somewhere fresh.
As Queensland's largest inland city and a gateway to the west, there are so many reasons to consider meeting in Toowoomba as an alternative to metropolitan or coastal locations. With the Toowoomba Region experiencing an unprecedented period of growth thanks to industry diversification and infrastructure investment - it's no wonder business delegate represent a quarter of visitors to our region.
There is so much more to the region than just the city of Toowoomba. A short drive out of the CBD reveals a different experience – the plains, mountains and lakes of the Darling Downs where history, agriculture, aviation, national parks and water sports abound. There are attractions, events and a variety of places to meet in the areas north, south and west of Toowoomba city but still in the Toowoomba Region footprint. The region is perfect to explore as part of a conference, for partner programs or pre and post-event touring.
Delegates can fly directly into Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport via Sydney, Melbourne, Townsville and Regional Queensland. Air access is also available into Brisbane and Gold Coasts airports, linking to Toowoomba by hire car, airport shuttle or coach. Greyhound Australia, Bus Queensland and Murrays Coaches provide daily connections from Brisbane Roma Street Transit Centre, Brisbane Airport and regional locations into the Toowoomba Transit Centre, located in the heart of the CBD. Toowoomba is an easy two-hour drive west from Brisbane airport, two and a half hours from the Gold Coast and a three-hour scenic country drive from the Sunshine Coast.
It’s what happens outside the classroom that takes a business event from good to great. When your group needs an active break from the classroom, Toowoomba has a surprising number of options to entertain your delegates. Stroll the escarpment, catch a show at Queensland's oldest regional theatre, enjoy 18 holes on our PGA Championship golf course or try your hand at mini golf.
