Centenary Heights is a suburb of Toowoomba in the Toowoomba Region, Queensland, Australia, located 4 kilometres (2 mi) from the central business district.


Previously part of Middle Ridge, the area was named Centenary Heights in 1960 in honour of the separation of Queensland from New South Wales in 1859.


The suburb has two parks: Emmerson Park, which includes two separate play areas, a barbecue, and a significant planting of mature trees; and Horners Reserve, which includes one small park and a large town water storage reserve.
