Inglewood

Midway between Goondiwindi and Warwick on the Cunningham Highway you’ll find Inglewood, sitting peacefully on the banks of the serene Macintyre Brook.

Established in 1862, this friendly country town is blessed with fertile agricultural lands and is home to a thriving rural economy and just over 1000 people. Once a significant tobacco producing area, these days the focus is on sheep and cattle grazing, timber milling, and the farming of fodder, grains and horticultural crops. While you’re in town sample and take home some local produce including wine, olives, olive oil and high quality honey.

Enjoy a walk on the sealed walkways along the river bank into the recently rejuvenated central business area where you can explore an interesting range of local shops. For travellers there’s a great mix of high quality, old-fashioned service, modern facilities and a diverse range of country activities.

The area is renowned for its natural beauty and one of the best ways to explore is on a local tourist drive. Drop into the Information Centre on Albert Street for maps of the local attractions. If you’re visiting in late winter or early spring you’ll see and smell the beautiful wildflowers that dot the countryside. There’s plenty else to see and do in and around Inglewood including: strolling in the town’s restful park; fishing, boating, water skiing and sailing on beautiful Lake Coolmunda; taking in the perfume at the award-winning lavender farm and shop.

Don't forget to call into the Inglewood Heritage Centre, diagonally opposite Lions Park, and view the Australian Tobacco Museum display along with written and pictorial records of Inglewood and the surrounding district from its earliest days.

Enjoy birdwatching for the numerous species present including colourful grass parrots, wrens, raptors and the rare regent honey eater. Keep an eye out too for the unique Inglewood wattle and the native cypress. You may even spot a platypus in a quiet stream.
