Old squatter money contributed a great deal to the charm of Pittsworth, which lies at the centre of the Darling Downs whose rich, black soil plains make the region one of the world’s most productive agricultural areas.
Its ambience is enhanced by the beautiful jacaranda and silky oak trees which line the streets, bringing them alive with vibrant colour in the spring.
Fine examples of colonial architecture have been preserved here through the likes of St Andrews Church and its magnificent stained glass windows which are regarded as among the finest in the country. The main street building, which now houses the ANZ bank, is heritage listed and a shining example of historic Queensland architecture at its best.
Forty kilometres from Toowoomba, Pittsworth is an attractive, well-appointed town whose heritage is graphically portrayed through the large stock of buildings and artefacts assembled by the Historical Society in Pioneer Park.
