Springsure

Situated in a delightful valley with spectacular Mount Zamia and Virgin Rock overlooking the town, Springsure is located 66 kilometres south of Emerald on the Gregory Highway section of the Great Inland Way. If you hadn't already guessed, the town was given its name thanks to the springs located in the creek and gullies at the time of settlement.

There are a number of historical sites in this town including the Staircase Range Cutting, built by Chinese immigrants in 1905 to pay tribute to the many early wagon teams that stopped in Springsure overnight on their way from Rockhampton to the Gulf and Barcoo country. Just south of the town you'll find Old Rainworth Fort, built in 1862 as a way of defending settlers against aboriginal attack.

To learn more about the history of the town, head to Cairdbeign Homestead and School where relics from the past are on display for visitors. There's also the chance to go fossicking for opalised wood and labradorite in the fields around Springsure.
