The Highfields Pioneer Village covers an area of 20 acres of picturesque grounds with over 70 buildings of historic interest, pleasant surroundings and picnic facilities. It is located just 15kms north of Toowoomba. Our property is part of the Highfields Pioneer Village* complex located just 20 minutes from Toowoomba. This campsite is a wonderful place to rest whilst taking in the scenic surroundings of the village which is the home of the Big Cow.  Visit the Toowoomba Fire Brigade Museum which houses an historic collection of memorabilia, documenting the story of the people who have worked every day to keep us safe from fires since 1877. The collection includes Uniforms, Badges & patches, historical records & photographs and over 6 Historic Fire Engine Vehicles, Apparatus, Models & Collectibles. Visit the iconic Ambulance Museum that tells the story of Ambulance services in Queensland. We are within easy reach of Highland Falls which has some great walking tracks and view points of the falls. Pets are also permitted in this bushland area but must be on a leash. We are just 3 mins from local shops, McDonald's, KFC. This is the perfect spot for those who want to wind down and escape the hustle and bustle. We have amenities available and pets are welcome but must be kept on a leash at all times. Sorry, no campfires. Bush Camping. *Tickets to the Village are optional and can be purchased onsite from the Kiosk. Recommended time to view the Pioneer Village is at least 2 hours.

There was no welcome from Jody buy they didn't kick us out when we left at 3 pm either. Love the place. Very convenient as is close to shops but still maintain the camping 'feel'. Will definitely come back.

Australia themed Pioneer Stay
This is our 4th stay. Normally we are in the round area. But given the busy Carnival of Flowers weekend. They bumped everyone into the off grid area above. This was great for the first 4 nights. But they received a camp city of 5 families and parked them right at entrance. With so much room and so many un ruly kids at least put them further up the paddock. Your property has capacity to pull in so much more revenue with some great management and a Dump point. We're talking $$$

Old time exploring village
We ended up staying for 5 nights so we catch up with a friend. It was also flower carnival and gardens week. We loved the pioneer village stay and think we managed to see it all. Loved the Billy tea and damper and had that 2 mornings. Also had sausage sizzle on the day of mini train running, and old time movie. We thought it was great value for money!! But we are self sufficient in our caravan, even though we did use their amenities a few times. It is a pioneer village and museum, so don’t expect 5 star service people.

We were lucky to have the big grass area almost to ourselves, so it was nice and quiet. Easy to go and have a look at the Pioneer Village while we were exploring the wider area around Toowoomba. Amenities are basic but ok. Not sure if it would be sufficient when the place is full

Camping at the pioneer village
The campsite itself is lovely and quiet. We camped our van near some trees. We went into the pioneer village and were greeted with such warmth by all the volunteers. Well worth seeing.

Highfields Toowoomba with dog
Really enjoyed my stay here. Good and clean site, toilet and shower. Lovely people managing the site. Found a good little bush trail (part of the Williams Park trail) up the road which the dog and I enjoyed. It was also interesting to stroll the pioneer village too.

Camping Among Australian History
We had a great and unique experience taking a step back in time and camping among Australian history. Upon our entry to Highfields Pioneer Village we were greeted by the lovely and friendly volunteers who made sure we had the best camping spot on the property. A leafy, sunny campsite with an abundance of birds and manicured lawns and gardens, close to the toilets and showers which were kept very clean. There is also a swing for the kids and a picnic table. We had such a great time exploring the village and having authentic Billy Tea and Damper cooked on the fire for breakfast, listening to traditional Australian folk music. The Big Cow, Ambulance and Fire Museums are some must-see activities.

We ended up not staying. Very few level spots and ground was a bit soggy after recent rain. Area was very quaint and think would suit smaller vans. Jacqui (lady who checked is in) was very helpful trying to get us sorted, but we were heading home next day and decided to keep going.

Caravanning with friends & dogs.
We recently spent 3 nights at Highfields Pioneer Village and truly you need the two days to see it all. The village was interesting and informative. We camped alongside a fence which was great - we had friends with us and were able to fence out to our vans and make a nice area for our dogs to enjoy themselves. Friendly horses said hello and little horses came one day to visit. Grassed area for our caravans were excellent. Only negative was the last night people came and parked either side of us and shot rabbits. This was way too close to us for comfort and we informed reception. Next time if that happens I'll ring the police. Would we stay again - for sure - we all loved it!

Cute historical park
Great place with lots of historical items placed throughout the park surrounding the campsites. Geese, ducks and ponies roam free and access to the Historical village is near. Ammenities could be updated but everything is in working order, will certainly be back!

Don’t ask for power
Got there had requested a powered site when booking was told to see caretaker when we got there. Arrived saw caretaker he tried to squeeze us in to a space the was way to small. He said he doesn’t get told what camper’s need. Will not recommend this place to anyone. The owner needs to communicate with the staff onsite. We couldn’t stay the and had to find alternate site. As in title don’t request power it’s unlikely you will get it.
