Assumption College is situated in the city of Warwick, located at the junction of the New England and Cunningham Highways - two of the most important interstate road routes in Australia. Warwick is only two hours travelling time to Brisbane, one hour to Toowoomba and two and a half hours to the beaches of the Gold Coast.
Located about 500 metres above sea level on the southern Darling Downs, Warwick is noted for its mild summers and cold, clear winter days. Annual rainfall totals vary from 700mm to 1200mm.
Rich in history and primary production - Warwick Shire covers an area of 4725 square kilometers. It has a population of more than 23,000 and services an economic catchment area of 55,000 people in the Eastern Downs region.
Its strategic location and stable workforce have attracted a wide range of industry including Woolworths' BIG W Distribution Centre - the largest distribution warehouse in the Southern Hemisphere.
Warwick offers a range of quality services including education, health, banking, shopping, sports and recreation and festivals, most notably the annual Rodeo and Campdraft in late October. There is a major event occurring in Warwick almost every weekend throughout the year.
Warwick Shire is a great place to live, work and play and indeed reflects its catch-phrase "a great place to grow".
