Cooyar is a small town in the Rosalie Shire, located north of Toowoomba on the New England Highway. 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.

A general store and toilet facilities are available nearby. Cooyar's yearly show features great country show competitions, including the night rodeo. Cooyar also boasts the tiny Palms national Park, which preserves remnant rainforest and a stand of piccabeen palms in a spring-fed gully.

If anyone can help with info on my grandfather Allan Gutzke. Looking for any old photos of him while wood chopping many years ago around Cooyar and the Bunya Mtns. I thought there was a book called The Bottom of the Bunyas which may of had some old photos in it but I can't find it anywhere. Regards Larry Mullen
