Sandstone two-storey building with side verandahs. The front of the building features statues of the Virgin Mary, crucifixes on the gable ends of the building and a round tower to the left of the entry.
Warwick was the first town on the Darling Downs, established in 1849 on the banks of the Condamine River. The rich grazing land around the area supports horse and cattle studs, fine wool and grain. In 1871 the railway from Ipswich came through. Warwick is situated 158km south west of Brisbane on the Cunningham Highway. (Information taken from: M. Barca, Explore Historic Australia, 2002)
