Day Tour Description:
Once taking almost two days each way, our tour today follows some of the old Cobb & Co Stage Coach route to Toowoomba which using 40 horses could travel about 80kms a day. We take in sights of the lovely Lockyer Valley stopping for Morning Tea at one of the staging posts along the route, the township of Rosewood. The Rosewood Community Park has one of the coaches on display to look at while you enjoy your morning tea.
After our morning tea stop we continue our discovery of the old pathway to Toowoomba via Murphy’s Creek and the historic “Spring Bluff Railway Station”. We stop here to take in the sights of the old station and its wonderful gardens, so don’t forget your camera!
Gaining knowledge from your Coach Captain as they provide informative commentary about the history and the stories of the areas you are travelling through, we find our way to the Cobb & Co Museum in Toowoomba, here we take in lunch and a tour of the museum.
Reaching the end of our time at the Museum we board the coach for home, something just 100 years ago was impossible.
