We wait half the year to kick these bad boys off, we love to showcase (with a hint of big note) just how good we’ve got it out here!
Let’s find a tour just right for you or better yet stay awhile and do them all.
Cotton Farm and Vineyard Tour
Held every Thursday from April to September, you’ll enjoy commentary provided by a local cotton farmer as they showcase their fully operational private cotton property. It’s here where you’ll learn how cotton is grown, irrigated, and harvested known as picking in the industry. Then you’ll go to Riversands Wines for a vineyard tour before being treated to a personalised wine tasting and a delicious lunch all in their relaxed country garden. What’s even better, your bus driver will collect you from the Visitor Information Centre or your accommodation provider and return you when the tour is done. To make a booking contact the Visitor Information Centre.
Sandytown River Cruises
To really take in the Balonne River’s magnitude of water, pack a few drinks and nibbles and jump on board a Sandytown River Cruise. As you idle down the middle of the river, sit back and enjoy the commentary, views and abundant birdlife including pelicans, cockatoos, parrots and eagles. To book contact Brett.
St George Heritage Tour
Discover the stories and history of St George during a 4-hour guided tour. Enjoy a freshly baked scone on the veranda at the Anchorage Homestead, while you learn about the history of one of the oldest homes in the Shire. Then finish off the day by relaxing in the gardens of Riversands Vineyard where you’ll listen to the stories behind the labels of their wines.
To make things easier, your bus driver will collect you from the Visitor Information Centre or your accommodation provider in town and drop you back. To make a booking please contact the Visitor Information Centre.
Nullawokka First Nations Tour
No trip to Bollon is complete without visiting the Nullawokka First Nations Gallery.
The gallery found in Bollon’s old post office features works and authentic gifts from local emerging artists. Be sure to join a descendant of the local Kooma people for their two-hour Bollon Cultural Walk to discover bush medicine, historical scar trees, and experience a gourmet bush tucker tasting. Personalised half or full-day tours can be created for those wanting to delve more into Bollon’s history and culture.
Old Bullamon Tours
The tours begin and end at the Thallon Information Station, located adjacent to the McGeever Sports Ground. Here you’ll watch a wonderfully put together video about the historical and architectural significance of the building before being bused to the homestead. The tour includes access to the gardens and inside the homestead where you can satisfy the historian in you.
Being one of the oldest original structures still remaining in southern, inland Queensland, this is a tour not to miss.
