Welcome to the Southern Downs page.

Southern Downs ICPA
The Stanthorpe District Branch was formed on 2nd November 2000 with Mrs Cathy Smith as inaugural President with 7 families joining. Today the branch is known as the Southern Downs, 35 families are members from the areas of Stanthorpe, Karara, Inglewood, Texas and over the border into Bonshaw.
Over the years the Southern Downs Branch has proudly assisted Queensland ICPA by hosting a State Council mid-year meeting, selling ICPA raffle tickets at the Bush Christmas in Toowoomba and for many years the branch was responsible for stapling the News and Views magazine prior to distribution to members.
