Cambooya

The little village of Cambooya is in the heart of Steele Rudd Country. Australian author Arthur Hoey Davis, who wrote under the pen name 'Steele Rudd' and is best known for 'On Our Selection', spent much of his childhood on his family's small block at Emu Creek near East Greenmount.

A replica of Rudd's slab-and-shingle hut stands in Greenmount as a display of subsistence farmers' way of life, as depicted in 'On Our Selection'.

The Soldiers' Memorial Hall near Greenmount is another interesting local building. In Federation Park at Vale View, explore native vegetation.

In Cambooya's main street, The Bull and Barley Inn has recently been restored to reflect its original 1900s old world atmosphere. You'll find memorabilia and photographs adorning the walls. with all beverages requiring cooling being chilled in the Inn's original cedar chiller box. There is a restaurant and accommodation available on site.

Westbrook War Memorial


The WWI memorial in Westbrook is an ever-present reminder of the effects of war on this small rural Darling Downs community. The memorial records that 47 local men went to war. About half of the families listed are represented by more than one member. Two families each saw four of their men go off to war and the Westbrook community mourned the loss of 10 lives.

The popular 'Digger' statue with an honour roll was unveiled around June 1922 by federal parliamentarian LE Groom (his father William had served as the Darling Downs' first federal politician from 1901).


The 4.2 metre monument, a life-sized soldier statue standing on a pedestal, was designed and produced by Bruce Brothers of Toowoomba.

Once, the memorial stood in an open field. Today, development around it finds it adjacent to Westbrook's public hall.

Ju Raku En Japanese Garden, Toowoomba


Discover the tranquility of one of Toowoomba's most peaceful and beautiful parks - the four and a half hectare Japanese Garden at the University of Southern Queensland. Located on the northern side of the campus, it's Australia's largest and most traditionally designed Japanese stroll garden.

Its elements of mountain stream and waterfall, Dry Garden, central lake, Azalea Hill, three kilometres of paths, 230 species of Japanese and Australian native trees and plants, and lawns combine in a seamless and restful harmony.

Japanese gardens emphasise the use of rocks to create three dimensional pictures. All of the large rocks in Ju Raku En were placed by the garden's designer, Professor Kinsaku Nakane of Kyoto, to appear naturally dispersed in a random way.

Visitors stroll through the garden or relax on the seat near the Dry Garden; it's not uncommon to see artists quietly painting a scene or children feeding bread to the fish or birds, which include swans, ducks, geese and smaller natives. Japanese maples provide a riot of autumn colour, while in spring masses of lilac blossoms hang from the Wisteria Pergola - the perfect backdrop for a wedding.

Victor Denton War Memorial


Queensland's first known World War I memorial doesn't stand in a public park or at a street intersection, it's in a small Darling Downs' cemetery. And unlike the others, it is in memory of one man.

Residents from the farming district of Nobby wanted to honour 20-year-old stockman Private Victor Denton who enlisted with the 2nd Light Horse Regiment just weeks after Australia announced it was at war in 1914. He died of battle wounds in June 1915 on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey and was buried there. This memorial stands as a sign of the spontaneous, highly visible grief that gripped the community and the nation.

The memorial is located within the Denton family plot, alongside the grave of Victor's parents, in Nobby Cemetery.

Toowoomba monumental masons Bruce Brothers created the concrete and stone memorial, the broken column symbolising a life cut short. It was unveiled November 1915 during a recruitment march from Warwick to Brisbane, by a group labelled the 'Dungarees'. The march's participants drew large crowds in every town.
