Highfields

Urban

Just a short drive north of Toowoomba along the New England Highway is Highfields, a blooming community with many unique and specialised art and craft stores. Beautiful parks, delightful walking tracks, lovely cafes and an historic village make this a lovely spot to spend a day or two.

With breathtaking views to the Bunya Mountains and a diverse range of local plants, the 4.7 hectare Peacehaven Botanic Park is one of the most outstanding public gardens on the Downs. Nearby Davidson Arboretum is another public park bequeathed to the people with over 400 varieties of temperate deciduous trees, including some very rare species. It is a wonderful spectacle of autumn colouring in May/June.

At Highfields Pioneer Village discover a rare and unusual collection of vintage machinery, a fully operational blacksmith shop and a collection of restored antique radios. Join in the annual Easter Vintage Festival held here over three days.

Within close proximity along the highway you’ll find local crafts and good coffee at Abbie Lane Arts and Craft Village, the Village Green where the famous Chocolate Cottage is located, Jacaranda Manor, and Danish Flower Art.
