You’ll marvel at the large collections of 40,000 shells, antique radios and the vintage machinery, alongside the Blacksmith Shop and intriguing Boot Repair Shop, all at the Highfields Pioneer Historical Village.
You’ll find everything in working order, including the 1912 Marshall Portable Steam Engine which is used to drive the vintage machinery on special days such as the Easter Vintage Festival. The 1928 Dennis Fire Engine on display is one of the original Toowoomba Fire Trucks. The 1925 Model ‘T’ Ford Truck was restored in the restoration workshop at the Village in 1993, and is one of many vintage vehicles on display. The B.J. Palmer Boot Repair Shop is a real piece of local history and is a reminder of time when life was much simpler.
Billy Tea and Damper served with butter and Golden Syrup is available everyday from 10am to 4pm.
Run entirely by volunteers, dedicated to preserving the history of the Darling Downs for future generations!
