Nobby is an historic little nook in Southern Queensland Country, just half an hour's drive south of Toowoomba. Learning about one-time famous residents like author Steele Rudd and Sister Elizabeth Kenny who pioneered the treatment of polio, make visiting Nobby a unexpected pleasure.

Steele Rudd (real name Hoey Davis), the author of Dad and Dave, is remembered by the old-timers of the town and also by those who may recall the golden days of radio, where the Rudd stories ran for many years. Rudd's Pub in Tooth Street is dedicated to Steele Rudd and there are still plenty of local characters to yarn to around the bar today. Plan your visit for lunchtime. The food here is great with juicy steaks as big as the plate! The pub walls are adorned with extensive displays of historic memorabilia and photographs of the area's pioneering past.

Then there's Sister Elizabeth Kenny, the 'saint' who worked with polio treatments prior and the development of a vaccine. Near the hotel, there's a memorial dedicated to this lady. That's just a part of the history, with much more told simply by taking a stroll along the town's main street which is dotted with shopfronts from another era. Take a picnic to the local park which also offers barbecue facilities.
