Cranley: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Transport and Main Roads Heritage Centre


The only road building museum in Australia, the Transport and Main Roads Heritage Centre offers an exclusive perspective of the history of road building in Queensland.

Travel the winding road throughout this unique museum. The exhibits offer plenty of information about road planning, construction and maintenance for you to explore. Cartoon characters and interactive children's trail help teach kids about what has gone into making the 'black stuff' and if you love machinery, then you'll get a kick out of the fully maintained vehicles and road building equipment on display.

Located opposite Toowoomba's airport terminal, the museum showcases the hard work and pioneering spirit which has helped shape Queensland. Learn how the state's road network has been developed, from the conditions under which road workers laboured, to the modern plant and equipment you see on roads today.

Book now and ask for a guided tour through the museum and this distinctive piece of Queensland's history.

You'll be surprised at what you discover.

Newtown Park State Rose Garden


The State Rose Garden in Newtown Park has more than 1,500 roses planted, with many more to be planted over coming years.

This rosarium is being continually upgraded as a living memorial to the people of this city and the district in general.

This has been one of the most successful community projects in Toowoomba, with residents and volunteers contributing donations or in-kind support.

The major planting of roses in the garden was selected from the floribunda, hybrid tea, David Austin and climbing varieties. Of special interest are the Titian and Carabella roses, which were bred in Toowoomba and are just two of the Reithmuller Roses.

The historic Newtown Park is bounded by Holberton, Taylor, Tor and Pottinger Streets. Of special interest to historians is the Entrance Pavilion off Holberton Street where the history of the park and its people since 1912, and the history of roses, is displayed on brass plaques.

The Friends of the State Rose Garden in Newtown Park has contributed to construction and development of the garden. The Friends volunteer from 50 to 70 hours per week, depending on the season, for maintenance of the roses.

Toowoomba Railway Station, Memorial Honour Board


Stroll to the northern end of the platform at heritage-listed Toowoomba Railway Station and you'll find a record that leaves no doubt about the impact WWI had on the locality's population.

The Roll of Honour, 1914-1919, Queensland Railways Toowoomba Employees is a magnificently carved silky oak honour board with an impressive listing of 560 names in gold lettering on cedar panels.

Railways Commissioner Charles Evans, a former Toowoomba railwayman himself, unveiled the tribute on 14 April 1918.

Prime Minister Billy Hughes had stood on the platform in October 1916, urging enlistments.

The honour board was artfully crafted at the North Ipswich railway workshops, now the Workshops Rail Museum. Detailing includes columns crowned with decorative motifs of the Queensland Railways emblem, scrolls and shells, and the Australian Coat of Arms.

Toowoomba Railway Station, which opened in the 1870s, was still a bustling centre for trade and travellers. Today, the Westlander passes through, between Brisbane and Charleville twice a week.
