Toowoomba Regional Council has three Sister City relationships:
The purpose of these relationships is not only to enhance cultural exchange between the cities, but to also to promote and foster strong business opportunities.
As a result of these relationships, Toowoomba hosts several delegations throughout the year. By bringing school students, business people and international visitors to the city, our community is much richer for the experience.
Some significant milestones for all Toowoomba's Sister City relationships were marked in 2011.
