Street Walk

In 1902 a disastrous fire destroyed much of Childers but the subsequent rebuilding has given them the amazing variety of architectural styles still largely intact today. Take a stroll through the cool leopard tree lined streets viewing these magnificent buildings, including the old Palace Backpackers Hostel, Old Pharmacy, Grand and Federal Hotels and Millennium Park.
