Mitchell

Soaking in the soothing mineral springs at Mitchell is just one of the surprises that awaits you in this quaint town on the edge of the outback.

Just 87 kilometres west of Roma via the Warrego Highway, Mitchell sits peacefully on the banks of the Maranoa River. It lies in the westerly-most reaches of Southern Queensland Country and services the adjoining communities of Amby, Muckadilla and Mungallala.

Many a sun-scorched traveller has found bliss floating in the thermal mineralised waters of the Great Artesian Spa. It's relaxing for the body and therapeutic for the soul, and a precious natural resource that the locals proudly share. Located in Mitchell's aquatic centre, the Spa offers two large pools, one warm and one cool, of natural artesian water. It has been designed for easy access, with a hydro chair for those with restricted mobility.

You can explore magnificent sandstone formations, and pristine native ecosystems and take in magnificent panoramic vistas at numerous sites throughout the area. Accessing the Mt Moffatt section of Carnarvon National Park is easy from Mitchell. Nature lovers will be impressed with the abundance of wildlife including over 250 bird species living in and visiting the area.

Mitchell's active community is keen to preserve the treasures and lessons from the past and have created a range of heritage and cultural displays covering its local indigenous cultural heritage, early explorers and pioneers, bushranging past and social history.

Make your first stop the Heritage Museum - packed full of local history, historical items and photographs.

Don't miss Major Mitchell's Campsite - established in 1846 on his fourth expedition to map an overland route from Sydney to Darwin.

For a taste of the town's chequered past take in the history at Kenniff Court House - the original courthouse where local bushrangers, the Kenniff Brothers, were committed to stand trial in 1902.

And well worth a visit is working property and fully restored homestead Bonus Downs, built in 1911 by Australian pastoral legend, Sir Samuel McCaughey.
