About Newtown


Newtown is located immediately west of the Toowoomba CBD and was the first area outside of the city centre to be subdivided for residential purposes in 1865.

Given its historical significance, there are now seven Heritage-listed sites within the suburb: 24 Anzac Avenue: ‘Elphin’ (residence); 1B-3 Gladstone Street: ‘Gladstone House and Cottage’; 11 Mort Street: ‘Toowoomba Maltings’; 15 Newmarket Street: ‘Ascot House’; 396 Tor Street: ‘Tor’; 427 Tor Street: ‘Weetwood’; and 7 Warra Street & 30 Rome Street: ‘Oak Lodge and Spreydon’.

Consisting of a fair balance in demographic groups, owner occupiers & renters, Newtown residents experience all the benefits of city living, with access to numerous great schools, major shopping conveniences & parklands.
