Growing regional towns

The charming communities of Walloon, Rosewood and Thagoona boast well-established services that lay a strong foundation for their residents. As these areas have the potential for population growth, there is a promising prospect of delivering even more amenities and services to cater to the needs of the locals.

In the Greater Ipswich Region Plan, the Walloon, Rosewood and Thagoona towns are highly regarded as significant future planned residential areas and are as significant as Ripley and Springfield.

The presence of the Amberley RAAF just 12 minutes southeast adds to Walloon’s allure. Currently employing over 5000 people with billions in continual Federal Government and private sector investments, the Air Force Base helps maintain a driving presence in the local economy and also underwrites opportunities of expansion for other industries and businesses, contributing to economic stability within the region.

Walloon town is well placed to benefit from major infrastructure developments within South-East Queensland. Its location gives proximity to Toowoomba and Wellcamp Airport, Ipswich City, Gold Coast and Brisbane CBD.

Australia’s largest freight rail infrastructure project, the 1600 km Brisbane to Melbourne inland rail passing through Lockyer Valley, Toowoomba, and Scenic Rim, is well underway and scheduled for completion by 2027 as one of the major Federal projects.
