Description

Nobby is an historic little nook in Southern Queensland Country. Famous names like Steele Rudd and Sister Kenny make visiting Nobby a bit like taking a walk in the annals of Australian history.

Steele Rudd (real name: Hoey Davis), the author of Dad and Dave, is remembered by the oldtimers of the town and also by those who may recall the golden days of radio, where the Rudd stories ran for many years. Rudd's Pub is dedicated to Steele Rudd and there are still plenty of local characters to yarn to around the bar today. Plan your visit for lunchtime. The food here is great with juicy steaks as big as the plate! The pub walls are adorned with extensive displays of historic memorabilia and photographs of the area's pioneering past.

Then there's Sister Kenny, the 'saint' who worked with polio treatments prior and the development of a vaccine. Near the hotel, there's a memorial dedicated to this lady. That's just a part of the history, with much more told simply by taking a stroll along the town's main street which is dotted with shopfronts from another era. Take a picnic in the local park which offers barbecue facilities.
