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. Located opposite Toowoomba's airport terminal, the museum is open by appointment, Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm.

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.

Showcasing the hard work and pioneering spirit which helped shape Queensland, the museum provides an opportunity to 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.

Call 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 smell is what hits you first at the State Rose Garden in Newtown Park. The garden is planted with more than 1,500 roses , with many more to be established in the years to come.

This rosarium is being continually upgraded as a living memorial to the people of Toowoomba and the Darling Downs. One of the cities most successful community projects, the Garden is both beautiful and well maintained by residents and volunteers contributing donations or in-kind support.

The garden's major planting are from the floribunda, hybrid tea, David Austin and climbing rose 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.

Instumental in constructing the garden, the Friends of the State Rose Garden in Newtown Park volunteer 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 World War I 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. The 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. The original railway refreshment room has been renovated into a stately restaurant complete with fireplace and a display of railways silverware and crockery bearing the official insignia.

Laurel Bank Park


Laurel Bank Park is a beautiful 4.5 hectare parkland close to Toowoomba's city centre, featuring spectacular manicured gardens, a scented garden, a collection of exotic trees, a playground, picnic area, gazebo and croquet greens. With its sublime spring displays and avenues of cherry blossoms, it is most magnificent during Carnival of Flowers each September.

The Scented Gardens, are a 'garden within a garden' created from ideas presented by the Downs Association of the Blind, and feature fragrant blooms, herbs and shrubs in raised beds.

The park came into being in 1932 when Darling Downs Building Society Managing Director, Mr Samuel George Stephens, donated the land to the people of Toowoomba, with the City Council official custodian.

Prior to gifting the land, Mr Stephens improved it with shrubs and flowers, and was known to many as 'the man of flowers'. He asked that flowers be supplied to Toowoomba Hospital and that the land be retained as a park and not used as a sporting facility, with the exception of the Croquet Greens along Herries Street. Laurel Bank Hall was built during World War II and used as a mess hall for United States naval troops.
