A pleasant 30-minute drive from Toowoomba, just off the Gore Highway is Pittsworth. There lies some of the richest farming land in Australia. You'll discover a town equipped with modern facilities and everything you'll need for your journey, however there's still a country town feel and a strong sense of history there. A beautiful display of Silky Oak and Jacaranda trees line the town streets, flowering in October and November. The town is surrounded by cotton and grain growing farms, as well as some remaining dairies.
The Pittsworth Pioneer Village showcases the early development of the area and is dedicated to the memory of the feats of Arthur Postle - the "Crimson Flash". Once the world's fastest athlete, Postle grew up in the district and developed his live of running on the family farm. Craft travellers will be interested in the Lady Fletcher Lace Room which houses one on Australia's largest lace collections.
In Hume Street you will find the gracious St Stephen's Catholic Church, constructed in 1908. Just around the corner, St Andrew's Anglican Church is also worth a visit to view the magnificent stained-glass windows. Vintage store Curiouser and Curiouser is jam-packed full of antiques and collectables.
