Additional Notes Toowoomba is situated on the edge of the Great Dividing Range in the Darling Downs region, 132 km west of Brisbane. After exploration of the region's rich farming and grazing lands by Alan Cunningham, the first white settlers arrived in the 1830s. The city was proclaimed a city in 1904.
