Two iconic images spring to mind when you talk about Childers - rich red volcanic soil and the rows of macadamia trees, which greet you coming in and leaving the heritage filled town. The main street (the Bruce Highway which turns into Churchill Street) is lined with historical colonial buildings, which are set amongst the shady, large leopard trees.
Here you can taste lots of local produce from the regions four wineries and sample some of the local famous ice-cream while passing through.
Make sure you pop into the Old Pharmacy Museum which was originally established in 1894 as the town's first pharmacy. It houses an enormous collection of potions and hand made medications among the original fixtures and other educational components. There is also Childers Arts Space (Charts) for lovers of art and the Military Memorabilia Museum which is one of the best displays of military memorabilia outside of Canberra.
Childers is a great access point into the North Burnett and also toward the coast to Woodgate and if you continue northward Apple Tree Creek and onto Bundaberg.
