Signalling your approach into Thallon, giant grain silos act as landmarks for the town. Thallon was gazetted in 1911 and was named after the Commissioner of Railways, Mr JF Thallon. The town is surrounded by prime grain growing country and draws grain in from Weengallon, Nindigully, Mungindi, Dirranbandi and Thallon. In the 2012-2013 harvest, Thallon recorded the second largest grain intake in Queensland, behind that of Goondiwindi. Wheat, cotton, chickpeas and oats are just some of the crops grown in the Thallon area which are transported by truck or train into the Port of Brisbane for export.

Next to the giant grain silos, you will find the relaxed free camping area located at the Thallon Recreational Grounds, which includes toilets and showers (key available at the Francis hotel or through the Town Officer). For those looking for some comforts, there is power available by contacting the Town Officer. If you're wanting to stretch your leg or wet a line for Yellowbelly and Murray Cod, take a stroll past the grain silos down to 'Barneys Beach' perched on the banks of the Moonie River.

Thallon's Francis Hotel is not a pub to pass! Named after Harold Francis, one of the early licensees, the hotel stands metres off the busy highway waiting to satisfy your appetite for food and local history.
