Another beautiful wooden building in Rosewood is the Railway Station.I correct that, IT ISN'T WOOD, but made of pre-cast concrete to imitate the look of timber!The Rosewood line was part of the first railway in Queensland, opening in July 1865, but it wasn't until 1918, that this Railway station was built. Now, you can come to Rosewood by...more
About halfway along the main street is the Rosewood community Park with Toilets, and a replica Cobb & Co Coach in display casing. The Coach will not be on display all the time, but will be used at Fairs and Festivals to give people a ride in a Cobb & Co. Coach.It is also on display to highlight the Cobb and Co tourist drive between Ipswich and...more
As we headed out of town on our way to Marburg, we stopped opposite the Tallegalla cemetery, which happens to be located on top of a hill where there were good views of the surrounding countryside. This is known as Tallegalla lookout. Just a little further on, was a large open cut coal mine that is still in operation.more
John street, is the main street through Rosewood, the one that you will drive through when coming here.The street is long, and has quite a few historic buildings. Unfortunately, a fierce fire destroyed 9 buildings in the main street in 1914, so some of the buildings are a little newer. The Rosewood Courthouse is a rather nice old building, built in...more

The Royal George Hotel is where we have enjoyed meals a few times.
Back once again, I must say we were rather disappointed with our meal.
We ordered from the bar, and were served by a very nice young man. Then, we took a table by a window and sat and waited and waited. Now, to be fair, there was FREE country music in the Beer garden, so I imagine the cook would have been rather busy!
We both orded crumbed lamb cutlets, vegetables and gravy, cost in 2012 ...$16.50.
On a small plate, we received 2 tender lamb chops, a huge quantity of [packet] mashed potato, and one SMALL piece of Broccoli, Corn, Cauliflower, and a few Carrots.
The meal was OK, and that was all, next time, I will try somewhere else.

She had decorated them beautifuly, and made them affordable for everyone.Not a huge price like elsewhere, but ONLY $1.50 A CAKE, very cheap for a very nice Cake.She does catering for...more
I found John's Wooden Heirlooms at the "Farm Fun" Open Day.His stall was full of wooden toys of all shapes and sizes. I happen to like wooden toys as they last for ever, so I was very happy he was here. I bought a Bulldozer to put away as a Christmas gift. Prices were very reasonable!more
