Crows Nest was a "Tidy Towns"winner and has all the essentials for its inhabitants.

Among its attributes are a Medical Centre, Hospital, Nursing Home, school (both primary and high), golf, squash and tennis courts, football, bowls and a freshly renovated local Show Grounds.

It has a wide range of shopping facilities plus a reliable bus service to Toowoomba.

Many elderly persons come to Crows Nest for retirement as it is a safe little township and has all the amenities to help make a healthy and happy lifestyle for all ages.
