Description

Be transported back to Australia's early gold rush days in Clermont - one of the oldest inland settlements in tropical Queensland. First explored by Ludwig Leichhardt in 1845, it wasn't until the lure of gold attracted settlers in 1861 that the town flourished. However, in 1916 Clermont was devastated by floods and the town was relocated to a higher site nearby.

Today, visitors can still see the remains of the original town site. The Piano in the Tree, in Capricorn Street, is a quirky reminder of the height of the floodwaters.
