Autumn in WarwickIf you can hear the crunch of fallen leaves underfoot and feel the tingle of autumn’s crisp breeze caress your skin - it is the perfect time to discover Warwick’s history and heritage. You will really fall for Warwick in autumn. The rich ambers and burnished reds of leaves are reflected magnificently in Warwick’s famous and stately sandstone buildings and colonial cottages adorned with rust-red iron roofs. The cooler weather lends itself to brisk walks and leisurely ambles around these beautiful public buildings, churches and houses.

The Warwick region has a powerful and significant past, with events impacting on both Queensland and Australia. This history is superbly illustrated by Warwick’s architecture.



 
 
 
 

A comprehensive Trail Guide to historic buildings is available from the Visitor Centre.

Pringle Cottage (c.1871) is a museum featuring furniture and household items dating back over 130 years. Yangan’s historic Arts building is still in use today, and the famous St Mary’s Cathedral has a museum dedicated to the Catholic faith. Killarney Heritage Centre and the Allora Museum have many more quality examples of the region’s pioneering past.

Rescued from ruin, Glengallan Homestead (c.1867) is open for visitors to discover the chequered history of the shire. Warwick is the site of the first free white settlement in Queensland. The establishment of Australia’s Commonwealth Police dates back to 1917, when an egg-throwing incident occurred while Prime Minister Billy Hughes was speaking at Warwick’s Railway Station.

Jackie Howe, born near Warwick, was the first man to shear 321 sheep by hand in one day. The Jackie Howe Memorial has picnic tables, a children’s playground and amenities. A sandstone carving of the legendary shearer stands outside the Art Gallery. Roam around Warwick’s General Cemetery to see convict graves dating back to the 1850’s.
