In earlier days Duchess was an important railway and mining town which has declined since the advent of road transport.
Today, relive the glory days over a drink or two at the local Duchess Hotel where the beer and stories flow. The old Duchess Mine and the old lime quarry a little further out of town remain as reminders of more heady days.
Located 123 kilometres south west of Cloncurry, in Queensland's Outback.
Things To Do: The Duchess Hotel, Duchess Mine, Old lime quarry.
