Killarney

Killarney’s rolling green hills, deep secluded valleys and dramatic waterfalls offer picture postcard views and the best scenic country drives in the region. Once a timber and dairying town, it’s now a thriving mixed-farming district known for its premium beef and lamb, potatoes, onions, grain and timber. The Killarney Heritage Centre has a good collection of local historical photos, documents and small artifacts and specialises in researching local family history.

Drive east into the mountains for Browns Falls, Daggs Falls and the spectacular Queen Mary Falls, where Spring Creek tumbles dramatically over a 40-metre cliff. This tranquil little spot is perfect for a caravan or camping holiday in the mountains. Or you can stay in luxury cabins set in natural bush settings and experience all the beauty the area has to offer. Of course no holiday is complete without a treat or two so make sure you try “The Falls” café for gourmet burgers, Devonshire teas or some of their wonderful home baked cakes. Eat inside the café or outside on the deck overlooking the lovely grounds.

Nearby, next to Carr’s Lookout, Spring Creek Mountain Café and Cottages offers fine cuisine featuring local produce served up with spectacular views from its vantage point 1005 metres above sea level, overlooking some of Queensland’s finest natural attractions – Condamine Gorge, Wilson’s Peak, The Border Ranges and World Heritage-listed rainforest.
