Allora

Allora is known as 'the best little town on the Downs'. The town is just off the highway between Toowoomba and Warwick.

You’ll think you’re taking a trip into history when driving down the main street. Visit Saint David's Anglican Church built in 1888, and one of the finest examples of a timber church in country Queensland. There's also an excellent country butcher and a couple of home-style cafes in town.

Experience Allora's strong sense of history on the signed Heritage Trail. It takes walkers from one historic building to the next, street banners reflect the theme, and a series of murals at the gates of the showground depict local milestones. The town was the childhood home of P.L Travers who wrote the Mary Poppins stories, and the fallen soldier's memorial is one of only two Boer War memorials in Queensland.

Now restored, Glengallan Homestead and Heritage Centre embodies the history of the Allora region since the late nineteenth Century. A major draw card on the Heritage Building Trail, Glengallan divulges a fascinating insight into the workings of a pastoral station.

From November to February you'll see sunflowers in bloom.
