Local Government Information
The Lockyer Valley is home to so much more than farming and agriculture, it's home to a blend of town and country living with everything from top class restaurants and art galleries to bird watching, roadside produce stalls, horse riding, stunning national parks and bushwalking, all within easy reach. Located less than an hour from Brisbane, Queensland, the Lockyer Valley is the perfect place for a day trip, weekend or family holiday.
In the early 1900’s, Forest Hill was Australia’s largest produce distribution centre for Onions, Pumpkins, Beetroot, Carrots and Cotton. Silos were built to house grains and Lucerne.
From the earliest records to present-day, farmers have overcome the extreme weather conditions and other economic factors to remain viable and competitive.
