Mount Kynoch: Where To Go / Sightseeing

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.

A Room for Wild Animals


See 20 taxidermy specimens from the Queensland Museum collection.

Most of us are familiar with Australian mammals such as koalas and kangaroos, but have little appreciation for the sheer size and form of many overseas land mammals.

In a first for Toowoomba, A Room for Wild Animals showcases 20 taxidermy specimens from the Queensland Museum collection including big cats, bears and deer.

The specimens featured represent some of the most impressive mammals on the planet providing a rare opportunity to experience them up close. These large and (in some cases) controversial mammals are not just valuable collection items. The exhibits featured in this display are part of a larger collection some of which were seized as Proceeds of Crime and donated to Queensland Museum on behalf of the Commonwealth of Australia.

Today they speak on behalf of their living relatives across the globe and help us to learn an important conservation lesson.
