Surat

Fresh air and great fishing are two good reasons to spend some time in the picturesque little town of Surat, midway between St George and Roma on the Great Inland Way.

But they're not the only things you'll find in this relaxed river town. Take your time to soak up the history of Cobb & Co, unwind on a river walk or picnic in the tranquil surrounds of the Balonne's riverside parklands.

Early mornings are gold for birdwatchers. Active types can get out on the river water skiing or jetskiing and then there's the fishing. The Balonne is an angler's paradise and locals are only too happy to swap fishing tips and recommend favourite spots to wet a line.

Steeped in history with links to Cobb & Co and the 'boom time' of the wool-growing industry, Surat is a 'must-see' for any history buff. Here you'll get a taste of life as it used to be. The Cobb & Co Changing Station, the original site of the Cobb & Co Store and a 'drop-off' point for coach travellers and goods, houses a museum of regularly changing displays depicting the lifestyles of yesteryear including a 14-seater Cobb & Co coach.

The complex houses the Surat on Balonne Gallery, featuring local and travelling exhibitions, and the Window to the Balonne Aquarium - a 25,000 litre fresh water aquarium displaying a range of native fish species.

Make a visit to the Aboriginal Interpretative Shelter, which displays family histories of Aboriginal families who lived on the site in the mid 1900s.

Nature lovers and photographers visiting from January to May will love Beranga Creek with its blanket of colourful water lillies.
