With historic sandstone and timber buildings dating back to 1870, Warwick boasts some of the richest heritage in Australia. Team this with modern sporting and cultural facilities, and Warwick offers a relaxed lifestyle with modern amenities and numerous avenues of entertainment. Warwick is home to many national and international visitors each year, largely due to its annual rodeo – Australia’s oldest and most famous – and natural attractions such as the rolling hills of the Great Dividing Range. The region generates some of Australia's best agricultural produce, but also offers an ideal environment for business and industry growth. In addition to agriculture, industry focus in Warwick includes:

  • food processing
  • construction
  • retail and wholesale trade
  • transport and storage
  • health and education

Warwick is strategically located at the junction of the New England and Cunningham Highways - two of the most important interstate road routes in Australia. Taking advantage of this position, Warwick is home to some of the largest industry operations in the southern hemisphere, such as Woolworths' Big W Distribution Centre, which services stores from Canberra to Darwin.
