Toowoomba Southern Localities

A short way south of Toowoomba's built-up suburbs there are rural/residential localities running east from Wyreema (see separate entry). They were in Drayton Shire until it was abolished in 1949 and in Cambooya Shire until it was incorporated into Toowoomba Regional Council in 2008.

Vale View is immediately east of Wyreema and south of the suburb of Drayton. The Eton Vale pastoral run included the locality, but any connection with the name of the pastoral run is apparently unrecorded.
