Where are we?

Crows Nest is located 44 km north-east of Toowoomba.

It is an easy commute to  Toowoomba to access all the services of a major centre.  Although located in the region defined as the Darling  Downs, Crows Nest is situated 543 metres above sea  level, atop the Great Dividing Range and as a result is set amongst rolling hills. Close by are four National  Parks and three lakes. The vegetation ranges from open  woodlands to forests including some rainforest areas.  The district is known for its beautiful tall eucalypts with  diverse wildlife including birdlife and rock wallabies.
