About DDIB


Our History


Darling Downs Insurance Brokers Pty Ltd was established in November 1991 by Peter McKenzie and Paul Munson. This business was originally called Warwick District Insurance Brokers Pty Ltd.

Our register of clients had grown far beyond the Warwick and surrounding areas, and in September 2001 we changed our company and trading name to Darling Downs Insurance Brokers Pty Ltd to truly reflect the areas we service.

July 1st 2002 saw us achieve another milestone with the purchase of Ray Lyons Insurance Service Pty Ltd of Warwick and the general insurance portfolios of Great Southern Financial Services of Toowoomba. This purchase allowed us to operate an office in Toowoomba.

In July of 2018 after 27 years of running the business Peter McKenzie and Paul Munson retired. Long time employees Brad Millard and Andrew Munson purchased the business and our now both working directors of the company.

Our core business is Rural Insurance and Regional Commercial Business Insurance, to allow us to focus on this we sold our life insurance business to Andrew Brennan of Great Southern Financial Services.

We are a successful medium sized broker with a staff of 10 dedicated people. Unlike several of today’s insurance broking companies, Darling Downs Insurance Brokers has retained autonomy. This enables us to offer advice and service as well as providing personal and effectual attention to every individual clients needs.
