Take Your Motorhome through Toowoomba’s History

Toowoomba has an interesting history, that you’ll enjoy learning about when you come to visit in your rented campervan.

Toowoomba means either ‘the swamp’ and is also the name of a variety of melon, which grew on the banks of the swamp.

The colonial history of Toowoomba can be traced back to 1816, when an English botanist and explorer named Allan Cunningham arrived in Australia from Brazil. In June 1827, a rich farming and grazing land area of 4 million acres located 100 miles west of settlement of Moreton Bay, was discovered, known as the Darling Downs.

In the 1840s Toowoomba grew as a convenient stopping point on the route from Moreton Bay to the pastoral holdings to the west and in 1892, Toowoomba and the surrounding area was proclaimed a township. Toowoomba was growing fast. By 1858, the town had a population of 700, had many stores and three hotels. On November 24,1860 a new municipal was proclaimed and Governor Bowen granted the wish of the locals. The opening of the railway from Ipswich in 1867 brought a rapid business development, and then in 1904, Toowoomba was declared a city.

In 2008, Toowoomba was tagged as the Tidiest Town in Australia
