SUITABILITY
This walk is suitable for all agers.

HIGHLIGHTS
Woombye is a rural township in the eastern foothills of the Blackall Range, established in the early 1870s as ‘Cobb’s Camp’. Cobb’s Camp was established by Cobb & Co, which ran a coach service between Brisbane and the Gympie goldfields in late 1867. The walk will take you right through the centre of town, before taking you on a journey through the residential township as you journey through the town, the history of the ‘Cobbs Camp’ is still very much present, with several buildings, including the town amenities a mural backdrop and reminder of the town's early beginnings. The main street is picture perfect with its sweeping mountain views and quaint old shops, yet behind this sleepy façade is every convenience you could possibly need. There is plenty of iconic buildings, from the local pub who celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2000, the beautiful School of Arts (including a library) and the War Memorial located in the centre of town. Keep an eye out for charming old properties and beautifully restored homes. If you're taking the family on the journey, there are plenty of local parks to enjoy along the way.

AFTERWARDS
Spend some time getting to know the locals by enjoying a coffee or meal at one of the local establishments. For families, spend some time enjoying the facilities of CWA Park, home of the Light Horse Regiment Woombye Memorial Troop or visiting the War Memorial. Woombye is also close to major attractions including the Big Pineapple and Wildlife HQ.
