Aramac

Described as ムan oasis in the dry of the Central West', Aramac has undergone a recent transformation with the launch of the nationally recognised, Harry Redford Cattle Drive Re-enactment. In the main street of Aramac Stands the White Bull replica which tells the story of the most historically significant cattle stealing case ever recorded in Australia. Henry ムHarry' Redford (better know as Captain Starlight) commenced this daring cattle ムduffing' feat on a property called Bowen Downs. As part of the recognition of this feat, you are able to browse through the Harry Redford Interpretive Centre in the main street of Aramac. If droving is something you have always wanted to do, then Aramac is again the destination for you, where you can actively participate in the ムHarry Redford Cattle Drive', run annually through May and June. Take part in the associated events while you are on the cattle drive such as the Aramac Races, various live entertainment, Claypan Boogie, enter the camp cookout competition, or visit one of the camp sites to join their nightly, hearty camp oven droving meals. While in Aramac visit the Aramac Tramway Museum and step back in time with relics like Aunt Emma, the long-serving rail motor. Discover the fascinating country surrounding the township. Drive through the desert country and discover Lake Dunn. There's also fishing, water sports (sailing, water skiing), birdwatching, tennis, cabins, camping and very little traffic. Make a stop at the Gray Rock Reserve and Horsetailers Gorge where Cobb and Co. stopped and spelled their horses, or join in the Artesian Country Tours to see Gracevale Caves and Mailman's Gorge with the region's most recognised historian, Tom Lockie. Learn the story about etched images of strange six-toed human footprints and the Central West's own Rainbow Serpent imprinted on the sandstone walls. Just take the time to listen beyond the deafening silence to hear the surrounds of the busy.

Aramac: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Aramac War Memorial


Aramac War Memorial is one of only two intact soldier statue memorials still standing in their original street intersections settings in Queensland. Dominating the main intersection in the small central Queensland township, this memorial was unveiled by shire chairman EW Bowyer on 12 April 1924.

The granite and Ulam marble memorial is surrounded by sandstone kerbing and corner posts, and a second enclosure of granite corner posts linked by double metal rails; a metal flagstaff is located at the south-west corner of the enclosure.

A local committee of mostly young women raised the funds through donations and a variety of local social events. A roll of honour bears the names of 132 local men who served in WWI. Of those, 15 died and 11 were wounded.
