Flagstone Creek (pop ~ 220) is a small township at the base of the Great Dividing Range, in the rich Lockyer Valley. With a number of larger towns at your doorstep, you'll be only 15 minutes from Toowoomba (Queensland's largest inland city: pop-170,000) where you'll find a vibrant cultural, dining and entertainment scene, beautiful parks and gardens, and 60 minutes from Ipswich, on the Warrego Highway, and then on to Brisbane and the coasts beyond.

Flagstone Creek State School has a strong tradition of excellence. The school has received a letter of congratulations from the Premier and Minister for Education for consistently high performance in the NAPLAN tests. The school staff have been commended for their commitment in helping students achieve high level literacy and numeracy standards. We received an Excellence in Education Award from the Australian College of Educators (Darling Downs Region) for its program, Innovative School Community Learning in a Digital World. And we offer caring, experienced staff with strong family values, with parent involvement encouraged.
