Tipperary Flat, situated at the southern entrance to Nanango adjacent to Lions Park and the BP Service Station, is a well equipped picnic area featuring a walking trail leading visitors around the historic displays with informative interpretive signs provided.
In early days, Tipperary Flat was used for sports days and get-togethers with other families who lived close by and the name originated from the first settlers who came from Ireland. A walking track extends to the Tarong turnoff past 'Hannibal', the first Tarong Coal Dragline Bucket, and has become a popular pastime for residents, visitors and pets.... more
