Clifton

If you think of a quintessential country town streetscape you’ve got Clifton in mind. Dating back to 1875, this classic little town halfway between Toowoomba and Warwick has been used in a number of Australian movies including The Thornbirds.

To truly experience the town, the Clifton Heritage Walking Trail is a must. The self guided tour commences from the railway station and finishes at the cemetery, incorporating 43 sites.

Immerse yourself in the area’s pioneering past at the Clifton and District Historical Museum in the old Butter Factory Building. You’ll see a 1930s dining room, a pioneer bedroom, an early hospital ward, kitchen and children’s room.

A short drive north of Clifton is Nobby and the well-known Rudd’s Pub. The pub is dedicated to author Steele Rudd, who found inspiration among his drinking partners for the stories in On Our Selection and is a great place to stop for a meal with the pub walls adorned with an extensive display of historic memorabilia and photographs of the area’s pioneering past.

A short stroll from the pub is a memorial to Sister Kenny, a tenacious one-time resident of Nobby known for her revolutionary treatment of polio.

Just out of town at Pilton, Darling Downs Zoo is home to animals from all over including white lions, meerkats and newly arrived giraffes!
