RV Friendly Town

Laidley was settled in the 1840’s after being discovered by European explorers in 1829. Teamsters and wagon drivers soon found it a convenient place to rest after travelling over the challenging Little Liverpool Range on the way to the Darling Downs.
The second largest town in the Lockyer Valley, Laidley is an important centre for crop farming and agriculture. The town retains a nostalgic feel manifested by heritage shop fronts and antique style lamp posts. The community is proud of its history and culture which is directly reflected by the annual festivals, parades and exhibitions and the community spirit shown throughout the recent flood events.
A walk down the main street reveals unique local gift stores as well as essential shopping and dining. If you happen to visit on a Friday, the experience is heightened with market stalls and displays lining the sidewalks.
Das Neumann Haus, hand built in 1893, showcases its German heritage and the coffee shop serves a delicious Devonshire Tea. Free wifi is now available to the public in Annie's Place Coffee Shoppe. Open seven days a week 10am - 3pm.
Laidley Pioneer Village & Museum was Queensland's first Pioneer Village and houses an extensive collection of artefacts and local history. Open seven days a week from 9am - 3pm.
Branell Homestead is located a short drive from town on Paroz Road. This award winning B&B is a highly coveted wedding location due to its timeless charm, unrivalled views, attention to detail and enviable facilities.
Laidley is an RV Friendly town with caravan parking and a dump point available on John St North. Potable water is available via a card operated filling station opposite 2108 Laidley Rosewood Road, Laidley (outside the local Council depot). A free rest stop is located at Narda Lagoon, off Drayton St. Overnight parking (48 hour maximum stay) is permitted in the grassed area in-front of the Narda Cricket Oval, between the public toilets and the Lagoon itself, as well as on the grassed bank directly opposite the Pioneer Village on Pioneer St.
