Information

The little rural village of Cooyar with a popular of just 200 people, is located on the New England Highway 85km north of Toowoomba.
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. Free camping is available at Swinging Bridge Park (see separate listing for further details). A pub and toilet facilities are available nearby. No fuel is available in the town. Nearest fuel is available 30km away.

The nearby Palms National Park is well worth a visit if you enjoy remnant rainforest with Picabeen palms, easy walks through palms and pines, bubbling springs, wildlife encounters, moreton bay figs and more. Also check out the Muntapa Tunnel and remains of the railway construction camp built in 1911.

Various AirBnB accommodation options are offered in the Cooyar area for those that don't camp.
