Welcome to Lowood!

Lowood sits at the southern end of the beautiful Somerset Region, 80km from Brisbane CBD, 45km from Esk, 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.

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

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. 

Around the town are classic Queenslander-style houses and homes from every era since the 1890s, as well as several new estates.


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.
