Lowood is surrounded by picturesque farmland, meandering creeks and low rolling hills. 

Lockyer Creek flows through the district and joins the Brisbane River as it passes by Lowood from nearby Lake Wivenhoe.

In town there are many community services and clubs, a wide variety of businesses and shops and several leafy parks.

This district was settled from the late 1840s and Lowood township developed from the mid-1880s. It retains many elements of its early character and charm. 

There are historic buildings from the 1880s to 1940s, interspersed with later buildings. 

Visitors will discover loads of clean country air, bright starry night skies, our friendly laid-back lifestyle and the natural rustic beauty of this unspoilt region.
