Adjoining the Visitor Information Centre is a park featuring a mural depicting Quilpie's history. In the park you can sit and enjoy a bite to eat whilst you admire the unique hand crafted tables made from the rims of wagon wheels and created by local artist. The table tops are beautiful boulder opal mosaics inlaid with glass tile images.

The Quilpie Shire library is adorned with a beaten copper and mosaic installation titled "Ancient River" depicting the dramatic, yet subtle of the elements on the surface of their landscapes.
