The land along the Moonie River in what is now the Thallon district was already occupied by cattle stations when Sir Major Thomas Mitchell passed through it in 1846. Thallon’s History Booklets allow you to step back into the early European history of the district. Take the Old Town walking tour to learn about Thallon in its hey-day; follow the Roads of Yesterday (a short driving tour near Thallon); visit the Old Thallon Cemetery or learn about the history of “Old Bullamon”, the once-vast pastoral station on which Thallon now stands. You can pick up copies of the Booklets from the Francis Hotel and while you’re there you can enjoy the display of historic photographs of Thallon spanning the hallway inside the pub. World War 1 and 2 Booklets are also available at the Hotel which bring to life stories of locals listed on the Town’s War Memorial as is a short brochure on early burials in the district. While you’re at the Pub be sure to ask for directions to view the murals on the old railway bridge of local legends Colly and Pom.
