Toogoolwah Queensland

Toogoolawah is a rural town and locality in the Somerset Region, Queensland, Australia. In the 2016 census, Toogoolawah had a population of 1,279 people. Toogoolawah is in South East Queensland. Toogoolawah is a centre for gliding and parachuting and in the past the centre of a dairying industry. The district was originally known as Cressbrook after the Cressbrook Station operated by James Henry McConnel. The town took its present name Toogoolawah from its former railway station, which was named in November 1903 using the name Tugulawah. Toogoolawah is derived from the Aboriginal words “dhoo” (a generic term for tree) and “goo/lawa”, meaning “crescent shaped” or “bent like a crescent moon“. The name probably referred to a tree with a deformed trunk which stood on the site in Bulimba

Toogoolawah Showgrounds is a quiet peaceful site situated on almost 40 acres on the outskirts of Toogoolawah township (population 960). There are large flat grassy areas to camp on with both powered and unpowered sites available with some having shade. The amenities are clean and well looked after and there is a dump point on site as well. Fresh water is available and the powered sites are easy access. The camp managers are on site and are friendly and approachable and I had excellent WIFI access and phone coverage.

Toogoolawah is within driving distance to Somerset dam and the showgrounds are adjacent to the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. The Ramblers Drop Zone (sky diving) and Watts Bridge Memorial Airfield are both only short distances away from the showgrounds.
