Condamine Gorge and Killarney Attractions
The Cambanoora Gorge runs between “The Head” (bordered by Wilsons Peak and Mt Superbus) and the town of Killarney, located in the southeast edge of the darling Downs in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range. The Gorge is a place of great natural beauty into which is woven a rich cultural heritage. It is also considered a place of great geological, ecological and historical archaeological interest.
Queen Mary Falls
Take a leisurely stroll through changing forests to the top, and then the base, of spectacular Queen Mary Falls. From the Queen Mary Falls picnic area, head along a fragrant eucalypt-topped ridge line to the cool, lush, rain forested gorge. At feeding time, see the King Parrots and other rainforest birds come down in their numbers to the Kiosk.
Browns Falls is a 15 metre waterfall only 4.5 kms outside of Killarney. A walk along the river rocks requires you to keep a careful eye out for track markers. The walk through the eucalypt and rainforest is not difficult, and well worth it when you come upon the dramatic falls.
Carr’s Lookout is located on Spring Creek Road, approximately 8km north east of Queen Mary Falls. Stop a moment to take in the stunning view from Carr’s Lookout – there is an easily accessible carpark available near the lookout.
The Daggs Falls is another beautiful spot on Spring Creek where the water plunges over a considerable drop. The falls are located east of Killarney, with the Creek descending from the McPherson Range, just north of the Queensland/New South Wales border.
Killarney Heritage Centre
The Killarney and District Historical Society is located in the old Commercial Bank at 11 Willow Street. Here you will find records of the early settlers, loggers, agricultural and farming histories, records of early meetings of the various associations, and artefacts, books, photographs.
“Montview” Rose Garden
Smell the roses at “Montview” Rose Garden. Take a stroll through “Montview” to appreciate the vibrant colours and the drifting fragrance of the diverse plant species.
Artists and other cooperative members open the gallery on weekends and public holidays, other times by arrangement.
