"Nice and quiet for us older folks not yet retired"

After living in one of the noisiest suburbs you can imagine we find Kingsthorpe a restful, quiet place to live.

We have just bought here and are very happy. We have the best of both worlds, it's quiet and semi rural with nice homes in the area and fairly close to Toowoomba and Oakey.

Only real negative is there is no Supermarket in Kinsthorpe.
