Surat, Maranoa Area
Fresh air and great fishing are two good reasons to spend some time in the picturesque little town of Surat, midway between St George and Roma on the Great Inland Way. But they're not the only things you'll find in this relaxed river town.


Hebel, Balonne Area
In the little town of Hebel it feels like time has stood still, leaving behind tales of the Ned Kelly gang, Cobb & Co and dance halls. Hebel Hotel is a gem of a country pub. Colourful artwork by John Murray adorns the front of the pub, with the interior decked out in recycled furniture made from reclaimed bush finds.


Bollon, Balonne Area
The soil gets redder as you approach the great little western town of Bollon, sitting on the banks of the peaceful Wallam Creek. At the free caravan and camping area there are toilets and showers and plenty of shady spaces to park the van for a few days on the edge of the picturesque creek.


Wallumbilla, Maranoa Area
Wallumbilla is situated five hours travel from Brisbane, just east of Roma and has a population of approximately 320 residents. If you stop for freshly baked scones with jam and cream at Wallumbilla's Calico Cottage and Visitor Information Centre, you're sure to meet a local who will happily give you the rundown on what to see and do in town.


Yuleba, Maranoa Area
Yuleba was settled in 1865 and was originally located on Yuleba Creek, 11 kilometres south east of its current location. In 1879, the town was moved to the railway crossing, officially known as Baltinglass.

St George

St George, Balonne Area
From the moment you arrive to the time you leave, St George relaxes the senses in all the right ways. Perched on the banks of the mighty Balonne River, its just the place from which to explore the beautiful Balonne Shire.


Only 350 kilometres north-west of Toowoomba, Roma is sometimes referred to as the 'gateway to the outback'. Home to the southern hemisphere's largest sale yards, visitors can get a feel for the outback by perching on a fence or taking a coveted possie on the viewing platform to watch the action at Roma Saleyards.


Daymar, Goondiwindi Area
Daymar is a small rural community in South West Queensland, approximately 600 kilometres from Brisbane. Located south east of St George, with the closest town Thallon to the south east, Daymar is a lovely little spot to stop and stretch your legs.


Nindigully, Goondiwindi Area
Just 45 kilometres south east of St George, Nindigully or "The Gully" as it's locally known, is pretty much four houses and a pub on a riverbank. But what a pub, what a view and what characters you'll find!


Dirranbandi, Balonne Area
En route to Hebel, stop for a coffee, a shop and a look around Dirranbandi, the town that marks the end of the South West rail line. As you enter town you'll pass by the levee bank, which is famous for having saved the town from flooding on more than one occasion.
