Welcome to Lowood!
Lowood sits at the southern end of the beautiful Somerset Region, 80km from Brisbane CBD, 30km from Ipswich and 8km from Fernvale.
Lowood is surrounded by picturesque farmland, meandering creeks and low rolling hills.
Lockyer Creek passes through the district and joins the Brisbane River as it flows by Lowood from nearby Lake Wivenhoe.
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.
Visitors will also discover loads of clean country air, bright starry night skies, a friendly laid-back lifestyle and the natural beauty of this unspoilt region.
