Welcome to Downs Folk ...

Lives and times of the people of Toowoomba & the Darling Downs

Newly added:

John Flynn - Father of the Flying Doctor Service.

This site provides a home for stories, pictures, factual accounts, reminiscences and discussion about the people and events that shaped the Toowoomba and Darling Downs of today.

If you have an interest or have family associations with the region, I'm sure that you will be fascinated by some of the information and images included in these pages. However, you may also be able to contribute your own recollections or material to add to what's here - and if you can, that would be great.
