We’re proud to be a local, family -owned business in the Toowoomba Racing Community. We love calling the gorgeous Darling Downs home and take pride in being part of the Toowoomba culture. There’s no place like home when it’s this beautiful! Our community work includes being an active part of the Toowoomba races, and the Toowoomba lifestyle.

Our local community – Greenmount & surrounds
Clear Mountain Fairview offers their horse manure and horse shoes to the community at no charge.
Clear Mountain Fairview has also donated manure to the Greenmount Community Garden where members of the community grow and sell produce to raise money for the Greenmount Memorial Hall.
The Greenmount community were affected by the 2011 floods including the Greenmount Memorial Hall which is a thread key in our community’s social fabric.
Clear Mountain Fairview organised and sponsored a country music concert which raised much-needed funds for the Greenmount Memorial Hall.
The Chronicle charity tipping competition for Toowoomba kids
Clear Mountain Fairview’s marketing manager Lisa Frappell, was asked by The Chronicle to support the charity tipping to raise money for the Toowoomba Children’s Hospital. Lisa has been part of the tipping panel since 2011 and has assisted with raising some much-needed funds for vitally important projects at our local hospital. You too can contribute – click here to learn more.
The Chronicle-Clear Mountain Fairview trainer of the month
Our regular sponsorship and support is in conjunction with The Chronicle newspaper, where a local Darling Down trainer his recognised for their training efforts by a judging panel consisting of members from The Chronicle and Clear Mountain Fairview staff.
This award is conducted on a weekly basis and at the conclusion of each month, the training performance of the month is awarded a free month’s spelling at Clear Mountain Fairview (link to spelling page), valued to $600.
Clear Mountain Fairview feels that providing racehorse spelling as a monthly prize is directly related to promoting the Toowoomba racing industry and should be of benefit to trainers and their owners.
We are keen to reward our local trainers because we know that without them, there is no Toowoomba races.
At the conclusion of each racing season (August to July), a Training Performance of the Year is voted on by the judging panel and awarded a $1,000 voucher to National Farmers Warehouse (NFW).
Since the inception of this project, Clear Mountain Fairview has donated $49,200 in services and cash.
