Clifton

If you think of the quintessential country town streetscape you've got Clifton in mind. Dating back to 1875, this classic little town halfway between Toowoomba and Warwick has been used in a number of Australian movies including 'The Thornbirds'.

Set on the wide fertile plains of the Darling Downs, Clifton Station, running cattle in the first year of the downs' settlement. Wheat was grown for many years and nowadays it's an agriculturally diverse producer of cattle, cereal crops, sunflowers and honey.

The Clifton and District Historical Museum, located in the former Butter Factory building has a wide collection of household and agricultural items providing an insight into the area's pioneering past.

Just a short drive north of Clifton is the village of Nobby and the well known Rudd's Pub, which has an extensive display of historic memorabilia and photographs of the area's pioneering past. The Pub is dedicated to Steele Rudd, who lived in the area, and found inspiration there for his stories in 'On Our Selection'. Just a short stroll from the Pub is the Sister Kenny memorial. Sister Elizabeth Kenny also lived in the area and was known for her revolutionary treatment for the victims of polio.

Accommodation in the Clifton district ranges from farmstays, bed and breakfasts, pub stays, and a caravan park.
