Final Thoughts

Toowoomba is an easy 90-minute drive from Brisbane, and opens up the gateway to stunning Western Queensland. It also receives direct flights from major cities across Australia, so is relatively easy to get to from everywhere.

Weather-wise, it is vastly different from most of Queensland, and has four wonderful and varied seasons to experience. Perched on top of a mountain range means that it is lovely and cool even in summer, which is the best time to hold your wedding there.

A magnificent food, wine and coffee destination, your wedding guests will love a weekend away here (and probably won’t want to return home!)
