Tannymorel

Just west of the Great Dividing Range, not far from the New South Wales border about 28km east of Warwick and 180km south-west of Brisbane, lies the village of Tannymorel. Beautiful mountain scenery surrounds this tiny town, and the local waterfalls are many and spectacular - especially Dagg's, Brown's and those in the nearby Queen Mary National Park. The Queen Mary Park, which can be accessed through Killarney just to the south-east of Tannymorel, is renowned for its waterfalls. The most spectacular, 40m drop down a sheer rock face is provided by Queen Mary Falls. The park is well-equipped with barbecue and other picnic facilities and you can meet the local wild birds at feeding time at the Queen Mary camping ground kiosk. Close to Warwick in the Darling Downs, Tannymorel lies in some of the richest country in Queensland, famous nationwide for its fine wool, bacon, and dairy products, especially. The area is dotted with well-know horse and cattle studs, too. This is a truly lush, productive, and picturesque part of Queensland.

Tannymorel: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Condamine Gorge '14 River Crossing'


Accessible by four-wheel-drive vehicles only, the Condamine Gorge's '14 River Crossings' track is appropriately named after the 14 river crossings you have to make exploring this beautiful part of the Gorge.

During normal conditions the crossings of the Condamine River are relatively shallow. However, during wet weather the river will rise rapidly making it impassable. It is advisable to check conditions with the Warwick Visitor Information Centre or Bureau of Meteorology prior to visiting.

The Condamine Gorge is home to a number of endangered species, please respect this precious environment. Note that private properties either side of the track may not be fenced, so please keep to the road and creek area and observe the 'no trespassing' signs.

To commence the track from Boonah, start opposite the Police Station, travel out from Boonah along Rathdowny Road and turn right at Carney's Creek Road. Travel out approximately 12 kilometres to cross Teviot Brook floodway and then turn right to The Head. The low road is Condamine Gorge. This track is only accessible when the weather is dry, take the high road when river is flowing.

From Killarney, turn left into Condamine Gorge just after the abattoir.

Southern Downs Steam Railway, Warwick


All aboard the Southern Downs Steam Railway! This Mainline Tourist Heritage Railway and rail museum was established in Warwick in 1995. SDSR has restored a Heritage C17 Steam Locomotive to operational condition. C17, is a steam locomotive with 8 driving wheels and a 17" cylinder, originally built between 1920 and 1953.

SDSR operates steam train tours from Warwick to Stanthorpe, Toowoomba and Inglewood at select times during the year - see the website for details.

You'll find the Warwick Railway Precinct on the corner of Hamilton Street and Fitzroy Street where the old Warwick Locomotive Depot used to be, (closed in 1970). This site was chosen as the original train 'turntable' was still in place.

A not for profit organisation, most of the restoration work has been completed by 'work for the dole' participants. They have restored and re-built the locomotive sheds, workshops, water tower, repairs to the turntable, relaying of railway lines and erecting fencing. Now that the work is completed, volunteers have put up their hands to continue the restoration of the old railway carriages.

An extensive collection of railway memorabilia will also delight train buffs.

Warwick Railway Memorial Honour Board


A solid marble honour board at Warwick Railway Station notes the contribution of 101 local railway workers who enlisted in WWI - seven of them dying in the conflict. They were among more than 3,000 Queensland railway workers who enlisted. Some went on to help run railways in France during WWI.

The Commissioner of Railways JW Davidson unveiled the honour board, featuring a relief of a train, on 13 February 1922.

Warwick Railway Station, a large complex with a range of buildings and structures, became the area's main station in 1885, following the extension of the railway to the New South Wales' border from Stanthorpe.

The station became the backdrop of a national incident in November 1917 when Prime Minister WM (Billy) Hughes, standing on the platform spruiking conscription, was egged. That action also led to the appointment of a Commonwealth Police Officer at major Queensland towns.
