Step back in time to experience the pioneering history of Coominya.
A VILLAGE RICH IN HISTORY
The charming village of Coominya centres on the old railway station, originally known as Bellevue station when established in 1886. In 1905 the station’s name changed to Coominya to avoid confusion with the nearby Bellevue pastoral station. Today Coominya Station is a focal point for walkers, mountain bikers and horse riders using the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail.
THE COOMINYA MURALS ARE A MUST SEE ON YOUR VISIT TO TOWN
The murals were commissioned in 2007 by the Coominya Heritage Group to depict early settlement in the region. Painted by Somerset artists, the murals have captured the essence of the early days in Coominya, featuring vineyards, timber mills, the railway and school. There are seven murals scattered throughout town, so allow time to wander through the village and enjoy a combination of history and art.
Make sure to drop into the Bellevue Hotel or Blue Teapot Cafe for some country hospitality.
