Rolling farmlands, pristine cattle pastures, meandering creeks and charming windmills dot the landscape of Darling Downs. To truly get away from it all and feel as if you've stepped back in time a century, travel to this quaint region and explore its wonders.

About Darling Downs

Darling Downs rests on the western slopes of the Great Dividing Range located in Queensland, Australia. Bushy ridges and luscious green farmlands produce cattle, vegetables and legumes, wheat and barley, cotton for clothing and yummy sorghum. Rustic farmhouses and dilapidated sheds mark the area as somewhere that time almost forgot. However, travellers venture to Darling Downs holiday rentals to step away from hectic modern life for a while and remember how things used to be: simple and easy.

Driving To Darling Downs

Two passageways leading into and through Darling Downs are almost as enjoyable as the holiday itself. Drive across Cunninghams Gap, the main route of the Scenic Rim, where cars and motorcycles take in breathtaking views of the countryside. Trek Spicers Gap, where off roading enthusiasts find challenging terrain and motorists take in spectacular scenes of mountains, valleys and pasture land. Spicers Gap is though to be the original path used by native Australian traders before the Europeans arrived. Darling Downs accommodations are waiting for you when you arrive.

Goomburra State Forest

At Goomburra State Forest, tons of walking trails lead visitors through 130 acres of protected forest land. Bird watching is a popular pastime here, where people are learning how to be kinder to the environment. See how solar power, recycled rainwater and a zero waste garbage recycling plan is benefiting planet earth. Take in one of the many scenic views from the bush walks and swim in one of many swimming areas. See the wandering creeks and exciting wildlife of the area.

Queen Mary Falls

At Queen Mary Falls, visitors can feed the parrots by hand, stroll along a native animal walk at twilight and go four wheeling. On one of the many walking trails, watch the bandicoots, kangaroo, sugar gliders and opossums frolic and play. See the majestic red gum trees, the intriguing brush box and get up close and personal with a subtropical rain forest. Also at Queen Mary Falls, visitors can gobble down gourmet hamburgers, sip teas and indulge on freshly baked cakes at the Falls Cafe.

Other Things To Do In Darling Downs

Visit Cobb & Co. Museum in Toowoomba, where the national collection of carriages is on display. Or, watch the playful and intelligent rhesus monkeys' antics at the Darling Downs Zoo. The area is home to many small towns and villages where the old way of life is still real and inviting.

Darling Downs Accommodations

Ranging in size from a cozy single bedroom apartment to a four bedroom home that sleeps up to 22 people, Darling Downs accommodations can handle any size family or group of travellers. These rentals are ideal for any type of getaway, from a romantic weekend for two up to a week-long extended family reunion. Enjoy the peace and quiet of a rural neighborhood, rather than the hustle and bustle of a large hotel. Rentals offer fully furnished rooms, including a ready kitchen so guests can enjoy leisurely meals at their own pace. It truly is a home away from home.
