Profile
Darling Heights is an outer southern suburb of Toowoomba. It lies on the southern edge of the city, on the west ridge. The land falls away steeply to the west toward Drayton, the slope being occupied by detached bungalow housing with an admixture of larger homes, duplexes and small blocks of units. Most of these dwellings are less than 10 years old, the area having previously been mostly horse paddocks, of which few remain. The homes and businesses in the western part of Darling Heights are considered part of Drayton. To the east, the upper valley of West Creek forms the suburb of Kearney’s Spring, the western part of which is considered part of Darling Heights by many people. The southern part of the suburb is an area of acreage blcks and small farms. To the north lies the suburb of Harristown.

Attractions

  • Toowoomba’s Japanese Gardens
  • Darling Heights Post Office (at the USQ Campus on the ground floor of W Block)
  • Uni Plaza, a strip mall with a variety of specialist retailers, eateries and services. (Officially in Kearney’s Spring as it is on the east side of West Street)

Education

  • University of Southern Queensland (Darling Heights Campus), the original campus of USQ
  • Darling Heights State School, a state primary school, established in 1980, that currently serves around 600 children.

Public transport

  • Darling Heights is served by the Number 1 Toowoomba City Bus route, which winds through the suburb.
  • “Additionally, the University of Southern Queensland acts as a major terminus, with services to the City, KMart Plaza and Clifford Gardens regularly 9:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday.”
  • Despite the Queensland Rail line from Toowoomba to Drayton and southwards forming the western boundary of the suburb, there are no passenger rail services in this area.
