Warwick, a commanding regional town, is on the western side of the Great Dividing Range and near the headwaters of the Condamine River. It has long been characterised by elegant churches and some grand private schools, giving the centre a certain monumentalism. Situated in the southern Darling Downs, it is 140 km south-west of Brisbane.
