I don't know any slopes up that way. There must be some around, however. Grab Google Earth and do some exploring!

Looks a bit too West for Larrikin at the moment, Andrew. Do you concur?

I'm optimistic. But we all know with weather there are no guarantees.

The Windfinder forecast shows it as WSW for Toowoomba which is good: http://www.windfinder.com/forecast/toowoomba

By all accounts it's gonna be a "cool SW change". That's enough odds I reckon.

Anyway, only one way to find out.
