"HISTORIC ROSEWOOD" Rosewood by balhannah

Rosewood Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 37 photos

1st page written on VT about Rosewood.

Rosewood is a small town in the Bremer Valley, approx 60 km west of the Brisbane CBD.

The origin of the name is from the Rosewood (Acacia harpophylla) tree.

Rosewood has many historic buildings, an animal fun farm, coal mine and can be reached by catching the Train from Brisbane.

Make sure you stick to the speed limit driving through the main street, as Police radar is often set here, and they catch a lot of people speeding.

If you are following my 11,500km journey, we drive along the Warrego Highway to our next small city, which is TOOWOOMBA

    Rosewood looks like a pretty place with its many old wooden buildings. My niece and nephew would love the Farm Fun.

    I would love to go to the Farm Fun - I have never seen cattle like this one, it is so hairy.

      She is a Scottish Highland cow, real friendly. They grow two layers of hair so they keep cool during our hot and humid summers, clever aren't they!

    Great review for Rosewood. Its a great place to visit and an awesome place to live. Beautiful scenery, friendly people and only an hour from brissie. Couldn't ask for more.
