Queensland Explore Centre - Toogoolawah

Toogoolawah Visitor Information Centre

Nestled along the Brisbane Valley Highway, the Esk Visitor Information Centre provides a friendly greeting to those seeking a real country adventure in south east Queensland.

The quaint cottage-style building reflects the country hospitality that visitors experience from the friendly group of volunteer tourism ambassadors who revel in sharing their local knowledge and colourful tales.

The Esk Visitor Information Centre is home to Glenn Rock Gallery where an array of locally created arts and crafts is on display. Somerset artists change the exhibition monthly so there is always something new to see. While at the centre you can collect a range of free maps, brochures and flyers to help prepare you for your journey through Somerset.
