Travel Tips for Toowoomba

JONDARYAN WOOL SHED

by balhannah

Jondaryan is a working woolshed, and a rural heritage museum. Outdoors, there is allsorts of machinery and different items covering rural history.

Admission includes browsing around the old buildings and collections, seeing sheep, horses, poultry and other animals, and if there at the right time, seeing old skills being used, and Machine's of yesteryear, this is from Wednesday to Sunday.
One of the demonstrations is shearing in the woolshed. Others are seeing the working horses, wagon rides, blacksmithing, and wool spinning.

My favorites are the working horses and watching the sheep dogs round up the sheep, they are so clever, and they save the Farmer a lot of work.

We had a meal of Damper and corn beef and billy tea, YUMMY! The damper is cooked in the open coals of a fire.
Tea and damper only available Wednesday - Sunday

There is accommodation if you wish to stay here, it is very reasonable.

Take the road that leads to Oakey, go past Oakey and its little further on.

Admission is from $9 depending if you have a look on your own, or if you want a guided tour, its $13, these are 2010 prices.

In August, the Heritage Festival is held, Admission then is $15, but this is when everything is happening and the best time to go.

OPEN...........7 Days a week from 10am to 4pm.
Jondaryan Woolshed, 264 Evanslea Road, Jondaryan, 4403

QUEEN'S PARK - PARTERRE GARDEN

by balhannah

The parterre gardens located in Queen's Park, are a popular location for weddings.

It is only a small garden, but very nice.

When I visited, it had Annuals as well as shapes, and was surrounded by small and large hedges.

This formal European garden style is further enhanced by a series of stoned walkways, and sculptures.

Home Town

by ogb4619

I lived here for 12 years after my Dad sold our sheep and cattle property outside tara, west of dalby (see separate note).

It's a very beautiful city of over 80,000 people.
Very cold in winter, perfect in summer.
So many things to do and see.

I went to The Toowoomba Preparatory School at the top of Campbell Street.
The school is one of Queenslands oldest and most famous primary schools and is worth a visit also.

As kids, we used to hike to "Table Top Mountain" which can be seen from Picnic Point, an outcrop that looks out over the beautiful Lokyer Valley below.

The city is lined with huge, beautiful old camphor-laurel trees and loud kurrawong birds that wake you not-so-gently in the mornings.

Definately one of Australia's most beautiful cities that comes into its unique style in spring with the flowers that grow mad in this volcanic soil.
