Cooyar

Cooyar is a small town in the Rosalie Shire, 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. A general store and toilet facilities are available nearby.

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.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
