Cooyar is located north of Toowoomba on the New England Highway.
The suspension bridge is a real talking point in this town. It was rebuilt in 1988 after a devastating flood swept away the previous bridge, a local hall, three houses and several cars. The bridge is located in Swinging Bridge Park in Cooyar, a short distance from the Cooyar Hotel. So drop in for a cool ale and some quality country tucker after visiting the bridge.
Cooyar's yearly show features great country show competitions, including the night rodeo. Cooyar also boasts the tiny Palms national Park, which preserves remnant rainforest and a stand of piccabeen palms in a spring-fed gully.
We had a lovely stay at Cooyar Pub. Great welcome by Karen. Great service & delicious meals. Accommdation great for a country pub that opened in 1901. Bed comfortable with a sensational shower.
Thanks again, we will return Annie & Huntley. :-)
