"An eclectic rural gem"

Having lived in Rosewood for 3 years now I am very excited about the potential of this well regarded town. My street is home to singles, couples, families and retirees who all take pride in their homes. This town is a rural gem with the benefit of being a short drive to the prosperous city of Ipswich whilst being situated distant enough to enjoy a layback rural lifestyle.

Rosewood offers all the modern conveniences of a large town, beautiful rural scenery, idyllic country pubs and shops, properties from 600sq m to 500 acres, eclectic styles in cottages and houses, a strong emphasis on the local rail and farming history and a burgeoning Equestrian Centre of Excellence.

Conveniently located between Ipswich and Toowoomba with direct rail access to the centre of Brisbane, Rosewood is a popular destination for cyclists, motorcycle clubs and those on a sunday drive in the beautiful Scenic Rim countryside. Rosewood enjoys a fairly quiet atmosphere, with the exception of the regular coal trains and trucks which service the mines industry in the surrounding area. I personally do not find these annoying as I enjoy the sheer grunt and power of the diesel Train engines.

If you are looking for a place to raise your children in fresh air and room to move, want to retire from the 'rat-race' lifestyle of the city and you enjoy a bit of house renovating, then Rosewood is the place for you.

Hegatron Hi there, i was wondering do you get the undesirable element from ipswich down that way? We are looking for a place which is rural yet still has a train line to the city as i work there.
