Australian Towns & Cities
Queensland: Toogoolawah
Incorporating photos and Information from Michael Greenslade's former Australian Towns, Cities and Highways site

Toogoolawah, a small town located in the Brisbane Valley, lies just off the Brisbane Valley Hwy between Esk and Kingaroy. Established in 1904 when the railway line was extended from Esk, the town became a centre for the surrounding beef and dairying industries. The town is very close to both Somerset and Wivenhoe Dams, both of which are the main water suppliers to Brisbane. The small airfield to the north mainly caters for skydivers with the nearby Bellevue Homestead also of interest.
