East Toowoomba is an attractive established leafy suburb located halfway between the CBD
and the Toowoomba Range. It is a major heritage precinct of the city with many stately homes
and substantial buildings. There is a mix of architectural styles in East Toowoomba including
traditional and renovated Queenslanders and Colonials, examples of art deco architecture,
Californian bungalows, post-war housing, chamferboard and brick and tile houses.
The area is close to a number of popular private schools. Most of the blocks in the area are large
and offer many wonderful turn-of-the-century homes. Queens Park dominates the suburb and
was declared a reserve in 1869. It is now a centre point for local culture and entertainment with
markets and annual community festivals including Shakespeare in the Park and Easter Fest.
Families are catered for with a number of private and state schools in the suburb. It is also home
to the Cobb and Co. museum, the Clive Berghoffer Stadium, the Toowoomba Bowls Club and the
Southern Queensland Institute of TAFE.
