Glenmorgan

A small community with plenty of character and charm, you’ll see why Glenmorgan was the winner of the 2008 Queensland Bush Spirit Award.

Car and railway buffs love this little town - Glenmorgan is a small community with lots of character!
Monty's Garage and Vintage Car Museum is like stepping into a auto workshop from the 1940s .. you'll see beautifully, painstakingly restored vintage cars and trucks as well as works in progress and motoring memorabilia. You can also fill up with fuel there.

Visit the end of the railway extension, 'End of the Line' and view memorabilia of the railway in the Shire. Housed in the Glenmorgan Railway Station, it's a must see for railway buffs. Interesting local fact: the streets are all named after family members of one-time Queensland parliamentarian, Minister for Railways, Godfrey Morgan.

Glenmorgan is also home to Myall Park Botanic Gardens, which is an internationally recognised botanic garden, boasting Queensland's oldest collection of Australian semi-arid zone flora. The gardens were developed by amateur botanist David Gordon, AM in the 1940s on the ridge behind his home. He and his family then spent the 1950s gathering seeds and cuttings of Australian plants from all over the continent, which they then propagated and then planted over an area which covers more than 130 hectares. Many species planted by David are now extremely rare and sometimes extinct in their own natural habitat. The on-site gallery exhibits superb botanical paintings by his wife, the late Dorothy Gordon. Follow the interpretive signs off the beaten track on foot or on bike, to see the very best specimens.

There's also a hotel and a shop in town. Glenmorgan is located on Surat Development Road between Surat and The Gums.

Mount Morgan

Mount Morgan, Rockhampton Area
Mount Morgan is an historical mining town nestled on the Dee River a short 38 kilometre drive from Rockhampton. The town is rich in nineteenth century Queensland colonial history and has artefacts and relics from the gold rush days that visitors can experience.

Banana

Valentine Plains, Banana Area
Visitors are always a little baffled by the town’s unusual name, particularly as there isn’t a single banana tree in sight. A dun-coloured bullock is responsible for that. A favourite of local stockmen in the 1860s, Banana the bullock, so named for his yellowish colouring, would help herd wild cattle into holding yards.

Thangool

Thangool, Banana Area
More than 130 years in the making, Thangool first opened to settlers, who tried it as a sheep run in the 1850s. Soon to fail, beef cattle were introduced and later, dairy and cotton took hold. Based on the success of these industries, a make-shift town sprang up.

Theodore

Theodore, Banana Area
Theodore is located on the Dawson River 105 kilometres south west of Biloela. From its earliest days, Theodore was a stopping point for travellers and the same is true today. A pretty place, Theodore is shaped like a point between the Dawson River and Castle Creek, its palm lined streets give a tropical feel to the place.

Thangool, Banana Area
