About Warwick

Warwick is situated 162 km southwest of Brisbane and 82 km south of Toowoomba

Allan Cunningham was the first to explore the area back in 1827. The Leslie brothers established a sheep station in 1840. In 1849, Patrick Leslie was asked by the New South Wales Government to select a site for a township. Warwick was surveyed and established, making it the first town in Queensland, following Brisbane.

An instrumental factor in making Warwick a city in 1936 was the establishment of a railway line which opened in 1871, from the Ipswich line. In 1917 Prime Minister Billy Hughes was hit by an egg at Warwick Station while addressing the crowd on the conscription issue but the local police refused to arrest the man responsible. The PM then initiated the Federal Police with sweeping powers Australia wide.

At 453 metres above sea level, Warwick sits on the Condamine River and is known as the ‘Rose and Rodeo City’ due to the prolific displays of superb roses in the town. Our famous rodeo provides the other half of the moniker.

The region produces some of Australia’s finest wool and grain and supports many famous horse and cattle studs as well as producing dairy products, fruit, vegetables and timber. Warwick beef has a quality reputation both nationally and internationally . Dragon Street’s Pringle Cottage museum houses a large photo collection, old vehicles and machinery.

There’s an antique and collectables fair in January and a rock swap at Easter, as well as the Warwick Rodeo in October. Fifteen kilometres west, you can enjoy water sports at the Leslie Dam and if you travel 45 kilometres east, via Killarney, you’ll see the magnificent waterfalls at Queen Mary Falls National Park.

Further east from the falls is Carr’s Lookout with panoramic views of the valley below. Main Range National Park is northeast of Warwick and gateway to magnificent country highly valued by bushwalkers, birdwatchers and nature lovers. Goomburra Forest Park, east of Allora, includes Sylvester’s Lookout, Mt. Castle and the Hole in the Wall, where you can also camp amongst nature’s beauty.

Horsepower

Warwick is synonymous with ‘horsepower’ – of all kinds. Whatever the month or the season, visitors can thrill to the action to be found throughout the Warwick region. Four-legged ‘horsepower’ came to Warwick just under 150 years ago when the town introduced its first rodeo. The Canning Downs Campdraft has made the Warwick Rodeo the most famous in the nation.

Four-wheeled ‘horsepower’ began with Leyburn hosting the first Australian Grand Prix held in Queensland in 1949.  Today, Leyburn’s Historic Motor Sprint draws a crowd of over 15,000 people every August.

The thrill of modern day ‘horsepower’ can be experienced at Morgan Park (located just 5 min from Warwick’s CBD), in all its variety and exhilaration. The Warwick and District Dirt Bike Club have built a motocross track with large pit areas whilst the Warwick District Drag Racing Association has developed a 200-metre drag strip with a 550-metre secondary breaking area. The Warwick and District Sporting Car Club has extended their sealed track to a 2.2 km circuit.

Morgan Park is also the State Equestrian Centre for Polocrosse and Eventing and hosts competitions on international, national and state levels. It is home to the Horse Trials Club, Polocrosse Club and the Carriage Driving Club. Other ‘horsepower’ events are also held within the Shire, including Horse Racing and Karting most months.

Whatever weekend you visit the Warwick Shire, join us at Morgan Park to experience your favourite form of ‘horsepower’.
