SOME INFORMATION ABOUT WARWICK
The banks of the Condamine River might well be the last place you’d expect to find some of Queensland’s most prestigious sandstone buildings, but the little town of Warwick proves it’s more than just roses and rodeos with every visit.
The main street’s sandstone architecture, which now services a town of just 15,130 people, points to a vibrant past that’s 150 years young.
