Wallumbilla is situated five hours travel from Brisbane, just east of Roma and has a population of approximately 320 residents.
If you stop for freshly baked scones with jam and cream at Wallumbilla’s Calico Cottage and Visitor Information Centre, you’re sure to meet a local who will happily give you the rundown on what to see and do in town. ‘Wallum’, as the locals call it, is known for its friendly hospitality and its relaxed pace. Make sure you take your time to savour a good coffee and browse the Cottage’s local produce, art and craft before you set off exploring.
Wallumbilla’s Heritage Centre offers interesting interpretative displays, historic memorabilia and many old photographs of the early days. At Wallumbilla Railway Station rail buffs can learn about the district’s tragic rail disaster of 1956, a collision between the Westlander and the Western Mail.
Just eight kilometres west of Wallumbilla at Pickanjinnie you will find a monument to an Aboriginal legend, you can’t miss it!
