Home Hill

Situated on the southern side of the Burdekin Bridge, Home Hill was established in 1913 from land carved out of Inkerman Downs Station. It is just 12 kilometres south of Ayr, and is linked to its larger neighbour by the famous Burdekin Bridge – the district’s best-known landmark.

With a landscape dominated by lush, green canefields and the Inkerman Sugar Mill, it’s easy to see that the local economy is driven by sugar. The town has most amenities to cater for the traveller and a range of sporting interests are catered for, including a golf club and a pistol shooting club.
This is the gateway to the popular Groper Creek fishing village – renowned for its barramundi, mudcrabs, prawns and other estuary fish. Good camping and caravan facilities, combined with the area’s laidback charm, have made Groper Creek a must-stop for winter pilgrims and grey nomads.

Back in town, visit the famous Ashworth's Tourist Centre. See the murals that depict the district's rural life and view original Islander artworks at Zaro’s Cultural Gallery.

Visit the new Silver Link Interpretive Centre, which opened in 2007 to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the Burdekin River Bridge. Located in the main street, the centre tells the history of the bridge through more than 120 photographs.

To walk across the famous landmark, park near the Lion’s Diorama at the southern approach of the bridge and head to the pedestrian walkway.

The Comfort Stop in the centre of town is a clean, modern facility with free restroom, shower and barbecue facilities. There is ample parking for caravans and motorhomes.

For panoramic views of the Burdekin’s towns, farmlands, wetlands, waterways and coastline, head to Inkerman Hill, 12 kilometres south of Home Hill. Other attractions include the historic World War Two radar station on Charlie’s Hill and Tom’s Toybox, a private collection of working farm machinery from yesteryear.
