Who doesn’t love a ROAD TRIP???
A day trip to Toowoomba is a great idea. A great idea for families with lots to see and do. A beautiful scenic drive to the country to shake loose the tensions of the hussel and bussel of city life.
I took that drive last weekend with my sister and my bestie. We started off from my place a little later than we should have for a 2 hour drive (156.7 km) to the country. But it was worth it.
TOOWOOMBA… a beautiful country town 1 hour 36 minutes (125 km) from the city of BRISBANE. Toowoomba is a city in the Darling Downs region of southern Queensland, Australia. It’s known for Cobb & Co Museum, with its horse-drawn carriages. The Royal Bull’s Head Inn is an 1800s homestead with colonial-era displays. To the northeast, Ravensbourne National Park is home to towering red cedarsand rainforest. Nearby Crows Nest National Park features a eucalypt forest, granite boulders and Crows Nest Falls.
Now a trip to Toowoomba warrants a trip to the COBB & CO Museum. Full of artifacts from the past. Transportation being one of their larger displays. There’s Indigenous displays, science and technology of the time, hands on displays, artifacts of how our ancestors lived and worked (off grid) yep no internet …. wow imagine that!!! A great souvenir shop and a pretty awesome cafe too. Did I mention affordable and “WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE” too.
Parking, cafe, the entire museum and displays all wheelchair friendly. They even have a complementary wheelchair available for anyone needing a little extra support.
PICNIC POINT a view of the Valley you shouldn’t miss. Once again very accessible for us wheelies. Take in the view down the valley from one of the viewing points or the cafe. There’s BBQ’s, picnic areas, along with wheelchair accessible public toilets. Oh did I mention walking trails too.
Picnic Point is a heritage-listed park at 168 Tourist Road, Rangeville, Toowoomba, Toowoomba Region, Queensland, Australia. It was added to the Queensland Heritage Register on 13 November 2008.
Now unfortunately we just ran out of time to explore any further, so that makes for another ROAD TRIP to TOOWOOMBA. (Watch this space)
Let me leave you with a quote I heard today … Happiness is amazing, it’s so amazing, it doesn’t matter if it’s your or not. Stay happy peeps. 🦋
