Welcome to the Western Downs, a place of wide open spaces, filled with the rich pioneering history of the real Queensland. Situated just three hours drive west of Brisbane, the Western Downs region is easily explored via some of Queensland's major arterial highways. The region is also made accessible by rail, air or by one of the charter coaches.

Located within the Darling Downs region and overlapping localities in the Southern Downs region, the area covered by the Western Downs is sometimes referred to as The Maranoa, after the Maranoa River which runs through it.

The Western Downs promotes an area that starts from the eastern part of the arid South West region of Queensland to the agricultural region of the Darling Downs in the east, whilst to the west is the dry Channel Country.

The Balonne River and Maranoa River are the two main catchments in the region, whilst the Warrego Highway, Carnarvon Highway and Balonne Highway are the major road routes across the region.
