A popular section for a touring holiday starts in Toowoomba, on the Range. Head along the New England Highway to discover a bevy of craft stores including Danish Flower Art, where the café serves no fewer than 30 different types of scones for Devonshire Tea.
Further along at Cabarlah you’ll find Black Forest Hill Cuckoo Clock Centre. Inside is Australia’s biggest selection of authentic German Cuckoo Clocks. Right next door is Forest Hill Coffee House – perfect for a pick-me-up cuppa or light meal. Stay at Ravensbourne Forest Chalets – Swiss Style getaways nestled in the rainforest. Each chalet has a full kitchen but the hosts can also supply breakfast hampers, picnic lunches and BBQ dinner packs.
