Breathe in the fresh country air this morning ready to continue your country drive to Pittsworth. The country air must have worked wonders for famous local Arthur Postle, aka the Crimson Flash – once the world’s fastest athlete! Find out more about Arthur and other pioneering greats at the Pittsworth Pioneer Village. Be sure to take a stroll around town to uncover other local treasures. See the impressive lace collection at the Lady Fletcher Lace Room, wartime memorabilia at the RSL Display Centre and the magnificent stained-glass windows of St Andrew’s Anglican Church. Get your sugar fix at the Pittsworth Confectionery especially the musk sticks!
From Pittsworth, head north for around 30 minutes to Jondaryan, home to one of the largest and oldest woolsheds in Australia (CURRENTLY CLOSED). Take a self-guided tour of the Jondaryan Woolshed museum and station village featuring over 15 historic buildings. See a school room, blacksmith shop, homestead, boundary rider hut, stables and more. Enjoy refreshments at the onsite café (please check opening hours).
Last stop along the trail is Oakey, best known for the Australian Army Flying Museum. Step inside to discover aircraft used by the Australian Army since World War II. While in town visit the Oakey Historical Museum to learn more about local family history. Return to Toowoomba late afternoon after a refreshing country getaway.
