Explore! Majestic mountain views, rolling valleys and fertile fields invite you. Those proud historic homesteads nestled on the misty banks of the Condamine River are opening their doors, anticipating your arrival.
Here, Tiddalik the Dreamtime Frog dances, cavorting with the lively landscapes and a heritage that tells many tales.
Hidden secrets await you. Discover them below the moss-covered rocks where the falls spray, tilled into the rich black soil, or between the craggy branches of the Ironbark Ridges that watch over our sandy creeks and traprock gullies.
Saddle up on the back of a Pioneer’s vision, behind those powerful flanks that hauled us up, and over the Gap. Gallop now, where the reins hang free and hooves plough on, sweeping past the steam engines of our resilience.
Come rejoice where the sandstone sings, roses bloom, and a stage unfolds on every corner, as local characters, chiseled by artisans and painted by poets, frolic beside you, celebrating.
Feast upon the fruits of our furrowed Earth. Graze upon the banquet before you and come to know the heart of our place, where mate-ship is staunch, and you dear friend, are most welcome!
