Welcome to Lowood!
Lowood is a delightful settlement with boundaries in both the Somerset and Lockyer Valley regions. The town sits near the southern end of the beautiful Brisbane Valley - about 80km from Brisbane CBD, 30km from Ipswich, 45km from Esk and 8km from Fernvale.
Picturesque and Peaceful
Lowood township is surrounded by picturesque farmland, meandering creeks and low rolling hills. Lockyer Creek flows through Lowood's western areas and meets the Brisbane River just north of the town, as it flows by from nearby Lake Wivenhoe.
In town there are many community services and clubs, a wide variety of shops and several leafy parks.
History On Show
The area was settled from the 1860s and the town retains elements of its early character and charm. There are historic buildings from the 1880s to 1940s, interspersed with later buildings.
Around the town are classic Queenslander-style houses and homes from every era since the 1880s, as well as several new estates.
Relaxed Country Lifestyle
Some local families have lived in the district for many generations and continue to enjoy all it has to offer.
Lowood is also popular with former city folks who have discovered a true 'tree change', with its clean country air, friendly laid-back lifestyle, and the natural beauty of our unspoilt district.
