Living in the Darling Downs Health region

Crisp winter air, knee-deep autumn leaves, clear summer days and a riot of colour in spring; nowhere else in Queensland will you experience all four seasons as distinctively as right here.

It's somewhere you can appreciate the spectacular natural wonders, the stories behind historic sandstone buildings, warm fires to snuggle up with a good book in winter, the blooms of spring, or just spending time with loved ones.

You can drive to Brisbane or the Gold Coast in around two hours for a weekend away with friends or a short break with the family. To the west you’ll find rolling plains which are home to little rural townships, and warm bed and breakfasts. Cruise north to Crows Nest through hamlets strung along the eastern escarpment and check out nurseries, caf├ęs, museums and galleries. Go south into the country that was the setting for Steele Rudd’s stories, and enjoy the atmosphere in rustic historic pubs. In the north-west, the Bunya Mountains rise dramatically against the sky and offer spectacular mountain scenery, walking trails and abundant wildlife.
