Warwick CBD Heritage Walking Trail

Warwick Visitor Information Centre, Warwick 4370


As one of Queensland’s earliest settlements, Warwick is home to some of the State’s most interesting European history. Gazetted in 1847, Warwick’s first land sales occurred in 1850. As the town became established, stone from local quarries was used to construct the many fine sandstone public and private buildings for which Warwick is justly famous. After 1900, a second building boom gave Warwick a legacy of many fine Federation-era timber and brick buildings. Travel back in time with this walk that will take you past some of Warwick’s most grand heritage buildings. The best way to find and admire all of this magnificent architecture is with the official Southern Downs Visitor App.

This trail is 6.75 kilometres long and will take just under 2 hours walking time to complete. Extra time will be required to take in the history and admire the architecture. If the total distance is too far for you to cover on foot, you may prefer to jump in the car to look at some of the buildings that are furthest from town, such as the Warwick National School, the National Hotel, the Warwick Railway Complex, and Cloisters.
