About Lockyer ValleyBased on the western part of Brisbane, and eastern part of Toowamba, Lockyer Valley is a beautiful stretch of rich farmlands. It is one of the most fertile farming areas of the world. The place is also known as the “Salad Bowl” of Australia since a varied range of fruits and vegetables are grown here. The place is quite close to Brisbane city and takes about an hour drive only. The best part of visiting the Lockyer Valley region is experiencing the road side stalls and even trying the local produce straight from the farm gates.
Laidley Butchery based here is quite popular for experiencing the delicious treat of bacons. One can also visit the local markets where the natives sell some of the home made eateries like jam, chutney etc absolutely fresh from the farm produce. Leisure walks along the lakeside is equally beautiful where one can enjoy the peaceful serenity that rejuvenates the mind. Local exhibitions and cultural events are common here.
