Djuan: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Crows Nest Regional Art Gallery


Crows Nest Regional Art Gallery actively nurtures and promotes the local artistic community, with monthly exhibitions featuring the original works of local painters, sculptors, photographers, textile artists, ceramicists, printmakers and wood turners.

The gallery also regularly features exhibitions and artists from outside the region and holds a popular Christmas Festival Exhibition where art works are available for sale.

The gallery's annual Crows Nest Acquisitive Art Prize has gained a steady reputation, offering generous prize money and attracting high quality entries from far and wide.

Established in 1996 in the board room of the original Crows Nest Shire Chambers, the gallery is run by a part-time coordinator and a dedicated team of volunteers. It provides an arts reference point and fosters a community cultural identity, not only for those directly involved, but for visitors and the local community.

Goombungee War Memorial


In the Darling Downs farming community of Goombungee you'll find a rather elegant memorial in recognition of the local men lost in the battles of WWI.

Gallipoli survivor and hero of French battles Major General Sir Thomas Glasgow unveiled the Goombungee war memorial on 11 December 1920.

The people of Goombungee commissioned Toowoomba architect Harry Marks to design a classically-stylish sandstone pedestal with Doric columns, produced by RC Ziegler and Sons. A recessed square section bears leaded marble plates. The front plate carries 29 names - the town's men who died fighting in WWI. Atop the pedestal is a soldier statue, imported from Italy - an iconic representation of an Australian solder, which captures the qualities of loyalty, youth, innocence and bravery that grieving families wanted to remember.

The names of eight locals who died in WWII have been added.

Crows Nest Falls


Weeping bottlebrush, river she-oak and forest red gum line watercourses while dry vine scrubs grow in sheltered gullies where soil and moisture accumulate at Crows Nest Falls, a prominent feature of Crows Nest National Park, located about a half-hour drive from Toowoomba.

On steep slopes and cliff tops, eucalypts tower over a thick understorey of shrubs and small trees. The Falls are a haven for native birds and provides many opportunities for birdwatchers. Wildflowers, including the rare Acacia granitica, flourish in the shallow, rocky soils and provide colourful displays in spring and summer.

Explore Crows Nest Creek, the falls and the Valley of Diamonds by following walking tracks that start at the picnic ground. Lookouts provide views over the Valley of Diamonds. Seasonal wildflowers provide interest for photographers and naturalists, and spotlighting for nocturnal native animals can be rewarding.

Picnic and camping areas are provided (a camping permit is required). The campground includes unpowered sites for tents and caravans. Showers, toilets, barbecues, tables, water and firewood are also provided.

Crows Nest National Park


Discover spectacular scenery, granite outcrops, a scenic waterfall and eucalypt forest remnants on the edge of the Great Dividing Range.

Nestled amongst eucalypt forest, bloodwood and stringybark trees lies Crows Nest Falls, about six kilometres east of Crows Nest and 56-kilometres north of Toowoomba.

Take in the sights of nature as water plunges 20 metres over steep granite cliffs at Crows Nest Falls lookout. Extend the original 2.1-kilometre circuit by adding the Kauyoo Loop to The Cascades, Kauyoo Pool and Bottlebrush Pool, where you're able to take a dip on a hot summer's day.

Continue to adventure four and a half kilometres to Koonin lookout with a glistening birds-eye-view over the Valley of Diamonds and spot brush-tailed rock-wallabies, rosellas and fantails. Plan ahead with a reserved campsite for nocturnal bandicoot and glider sightings at night.

Cooyar War Memorial


In the Darling Downs township of Cooyar, two WWI memorials stand side-by-side ensuring this community's loyalty to the Empire is never forgotten.

State parliamentarian Arthur Edward Moore MLA (who would become premier a few years later) unveiled the Cooyar War Memorial on 14 July, 1923.

A marble soldier statue standing on a pedestal honours the 25 local men who died in WWI. The adjacent stone plinth reminiscent of a gravestone serves as a roll call of all 110 men who enlisted; their names inscribed on a leaded marble plaque. Such displays provide valuable local history, unattainable from military records where names are categorised alphabetically or by military unit.

Public subscription and entertainment fundraising events amassed ?413.10.0 for the memorial, designed and produced by Toowoomba-based RC Ziegler and Son. The soldier statue was crafted and imported from Italy.

The WWI memorial stands in Hack Menkins Park, beside the main highway passing through Cooyar.

Hampton Winter Harvest Long Lunch


The Hampton Winter Harvest Long Lunch, an ultimate paddock-to-plate experience, will take place on 9 and 10 July 2016 so diners can experience Hampton's winter offering.

Meeting at Chapman Park in Hampton, guests will be transported by coach to a local farm where you will enjoy the winter morning gaining a grassroots insight into local farm produce.
