Haden

The Haden district was first settled one-hundred and twenty-five years ago. As the early pioneers opened their selections, the need for schools, churches, halls and railway was soon apparent. Haden township was a thriving centre in the early 1900's, with two pubs, three grocer shops, butcher shop, Queensland National Bank - and a racecourse. Haden State School was officially opened on May 20, 1912, and first known as Wahoon State School. The brush turkey, known to local Aboriginal people as wahoon, was prevalent in the area in Haden's early days and in 2002 a monument was erected there.

Haden: 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.

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.

After good rain, water tumbles through eucalypt forest along a series of boulder-strewn cascades, before plunging 20 metres over Crows Nest Falls into a waterhole surrounded by steep, granite cliffs.

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.

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.
