Churches and The Commercial Hub

 *** This Tour is by appointment only***

Toowoomba has some of the most beautiful churches you’ll find in Queensland. This tour takes you inside some of these beautiful old churches. You’ll hear about their sometimes controversial and significant history and find out how they closely tie into the growth of commerce in Toowoomba. The tour illustrates the courage and vison of the men and woman who built a thriving commercial hub in an area that was once known as “The Swamp”.  We’ll treat you to a complimentary coffee in the city center giving you some time to relax before continuing our journey along Ruthven Street to St Patrick’s Cathedral. As we head back toward the center of town you’ll visit the site where a Jewish Synagogue once stood and we’ll take you inside a grand hotel that was once a church.
