• Theodore is located on the Dawson River 105 kilometres south west of Biloela. The first settlers came to the district in the early 1850’s and took up pastoral holdings such as sheep and cattle runs. The township had its beginnings in 1922 when legislation was passed for the establishment of a major irrigation project. A design for a model township was approved in 1925. Previously called “Castle Creek”, Theodore was later named in honour of the former Queensland Premier, Mr E H Theodore. It is said that the town was architecturally designed by Walter Burley Griffin in the early 1920’s
