Description

From the rugged cliffs of the Great Dividing Range that the explorer Major Thomas Mitchell once crossed, to the open downs country that caught his eye, it is no wonder that Tambo is being discovered by travellers.

Tambo is a living museum of cultural history and a place for the visitor to gain insight into the lifestyle and heritage of Australia's forebears. There are the sites of the early European settlement that was to lead pastoralists in the 1860s to flock to Tambo taking up land for grazing. The pastoral industry still remains the basis of Tambo's economy today.

Tambo's Heritage Walk through the town will take you back in time, visiting old buildings and historically significant places. The Coolibah Walk follows the banks of the Barcoo where the native trees reach out across the river and provide a cool haven for the birdlife.

The Tambo Lake area is the focus for a recreational area offering barbecue facilities, nature walks, native tree forest and water sports.

Visit the Tambo Teddies Workshop and see the sheep skin teddy bears being created and sold. Each bear is named after a property in the Tambo district, giving them claim to some of the oldest settled country in Queensland.

The Wilderness Way Self Drive Tour trail traverses three major river systems, taking you to the top of Queensland's Great Dividing Range. It visits many places of interest including sites of early European settlement and Aboriginal rock engravings, passing an array of sandstone formations and vast cliff lines. For the nature lover, enjoy sights of native flora, fauna and brilliant wildflowers from August to September. Camp overnight in the beautiful Salvator Rosa National Park. Enjoy the 420 kilometre round-trip at your own pace and discover why this area is one of Queensland's best kept secrets.
