Inglewood is a town situated on the southern Darling Downs in Queensland, Australia, 150km south-west of Toowoomba. Inglewood is the second largest town in the Goondiwindi Region as well as being part of the Border Rivers region of waterways.The town was the council seat of the former Shire of Inglewood until its amalgamation to form part of the larger Goondiwindi Region.The current slogan for the town is 'Catch the country spirit'.HistoryEnglish botanist and explorer Allan Cunningham has been credited with being the first European to discover the Inglewood area. He passed through east of the present township in May 1827. The first settlement in the area was known as Browns Inn and was an important watering point for bullock teams moving west. The inn opened in the late 1850s on the south side of Macintyre Brook, and in 1862 a town was surveyed on the higher, northern side. Plans were drawn up for the present site and the name changed to Inglewood. Inglewood Post Office opened on 16 September 1866. Most of the hinterland consisted of station holdings which were selected as early as 1848 and were the start of the wool, cattle and wheat base of the region.Inglewood State School opened on 13 February 1872 as a primary with a secondary department openedon 25 January 1960.
