A pleasant 30-minute drive from Toowoomba, just off the Gore Highway is Pittsworth. There lies some of the richest farming land in Australia.
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 region and developed his love of running on the family farm.
Crafty travellers will be interested in the Lady Fletcher Lace Room which houses one on Australia's largest lace collections. While at the RSL Display Centre, you can view an extensive collection of wartime memorabilia.
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. If you've got a sweet tooth, you'll love the musk sticks and other lollies made by Pittsworth Confectionery on Mallard Road.
Pittsworth has many events to enjoy over the year, including the annual show in September, the Broxburn Bash in May, The Pittsworth Sprints in September and the Pittsworth Craft and Fine Food Spectacular in October.
