    If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress? Hmm...

    How the name Toowoomba was derived is still a point of argument. There are several theories, including:
    • that it derived from the aboriginal word for swamp which is Tawampa as the Aborigines had no "s" in their vocabulary.
    • that the aboriginal interpretation for "reeds in the swamp" Woomba Woomba was used as the original source
    • that the word Toowoomba was taken from the aboriginal term for a native melon "Toowoom" or "Choowoom" which grew plentifully in the township.
