Toowoomba is a beautiful inland city, with a population of around 100,000, just 135 kms west of Brisbane. It is the gateway to south west Queensland.  Plenty of accommodation, some good eating spots, parks and opportunities to explore.  With the Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport, it is serviced by direct flights to and from Cairns and Townsville, with bus services available from Brisbane. Hopefully interstate flights from Melbourne and Sydney will resume in the future.
