Our Big Open Skies

Our Big Open Skies

Exploring our backyard yields a treasure trove of natural landscapes. From the mighty Condamine River to spectacular National Parks, vast State Forest, lakes and waterways, there are many ways to make the most of your time on the Western Downs. Try your luck fossicking, bush walking or enjoy a riverside picnic under shady gum trees.

The largest state forest in the Southern Hemisphere and pristine National Parks are a special part of our region’s natural appeal. Explore the easy walking trails, hand feed native birds or marvel at the carpet of wildflowers which springs up in the late winter months. Tackle a 4WD trail, or enjoy a glass of wine around a campfire with newfound friends. Whether you enjoy days filled with outdoor activity or slowing down to a more relaxed pace,
