Drillham


Description

In common with Miles and Dulacca, Drillham originated as a railway service town in 1878. Once a thriving metropolis, Drillham was closely linked to the railway. A railway weir on the creek provided water for steam locomotives and a camp was established while a bridge was built over the river. Reminders of the hardships endured by the railway workers can be seen today in the form of roadside cairns commemorating their efforts. The town soon became a thriving centre for regional settlers, and the area became known for its quality grain crops and livestock.

Grain crops, livestock farms and a strong visible history of railway activity give the community of Drillham its rural character. Today a variety of quality grain crops and some of Australia's best livestock are produced here.
