My partner maybe getting a job offer as a motor mechanic in Warwick was hoping someone can give me lots of info please, have two young boys too.
Any info at all on the area, water supply's, schools, climate,winter lol?
I lived in Warwick for 10 months in 2000/2001 and went to School at one of the local High Schools. Absolutely loved it, have been back a couple of times since to visit and attend one of my school friends weddings. It's a really nice place, people are very friendly, a bit isolated (about 2 hours from Brisbane by car) but there's enough to do. The town has all the shops you might need , supermarkets etc, there's a golf course and plenty of other things to do outdoors. They also have an annual Rodeo every October.
There's a few schools, one Private and a couple of state schools. I went to the state High School which was great. The weather is similar to the rest of QLd other than you don't get the sea breeze you might get if you were living in Brisbane or the coast and it can get very hot in summer.
I'm hoping to move to Brisbane later this year and as I've still got a few friends in Warwick I'll probably be visiting quite often :-)
Dear Australian High Commission, I'd like my visa now please, thanks

Warwick is fantastic and the castle is the best in the uk. Pubs are great and the nightlife is good.
Wow, sounds great! Fingers crossed my partner gets the job then :-) thank you everyone
NO CASTLES IN wARWICK IN QLD!!! LOT OF SUPER WINERIES A DRIVE DOWN THE ROAD THOUGH AND GIRAWEEN NATIONAL PARK
Warwick is a lovely town....you're just behind the main mosquito belt & close to the wine producing areas of Stanthorpe (well a couple of hours close anyway) surrounded by beautiful, stunning countryside...
It's a good sized town with lots going on....wide streets & a sense of space & well-being....
Lots of smaller interesting places not too far away, like Boonah with its spectacular metal statue of a Clydesdale - honoured as 'the horse that built Australia'.....& didn't it just - did a grand job.....
The statue is by a Scotsman - Andrew Scott....
As a previous poster has said, there's a rodeo & lots of other 'horse events there too...both Western style & English style....& even if you're not into equestrian stuff, they're great spectator sports....
As the Aussies say - 'You'll be right mate'.....102.jpgDSC_6123.jpg
