Called in for a coffee, even thou the flowers weren't planted like they are in September. The coffee was nice and warm as the temp had dropped. This place is very quant and comfortable and well worth a visit any time of the year.

Accidentally discovered this little gem.. heritage railway station with beautiful grounds and garden. There is also a cafe (but I didn’t order anything so can’t review). It is a short drive from Toowoomba or Highfields that is well worth it.

Visit during September for a very good display of flowers. Have a snack, coffee or meal at the cafe. Be aware this is still a working railway line, so be aware of trains.

Visited this charming station on our way back from the Carnival of Flowers to Brisbane as it's only about 20 minutes off the highway. Charming. Quaint. Worth the detour. A nice place for a picnic or to visit their cafe.

It was a beautiful drive about 1.5 km from Brisbane to Spring Bluff historic Railway Station. When we exited the highway into the country road, I was captivated by the undulating hills, spring green vegetation, blue sky and the peaceful rural environment. Being on a...More
