Toobeah is a town in Southern Queensland Country, just 50 kilometres west of Goondiwindi. Its a small town with lovely gum trees growing either side of the highway, set amid the cotton and grain growing farmlands of the Western Downs.
The town is well worth a look and is a great place to stop on your journey for a stretch and rest. Chat to the locals (there are only around 45 of them!) or stop in for an old fashioned counter meal at the Coronation Hotel. You can also pick up supplies at the general store.
The town takes its name from the railway station, which was used from 1910. The name is believed to be an Aboriginal word indicating to point, possibly because of the presence of a sign post at the road junction where the railway station was built.
