Westpac Bank

Westpac Bank


The solidly impressive Westpac Bank on the corner of Ruthven and Margaret Streets. Formerly the Bank of New South Wales building, this is one of the surprisingly few structures in Toowoomba made of the distinctive Helidon Sandstone, a 'freestone' extracted at Helidon just down the range and reminiscent of some of Sydney's Hawkesbury Sandstone.
