Thallon

South from Nindigully, in the town of Thallon, giant painted grain silos act as landmarks for the town. Thallon was gazetted in 1911 and was named after the Commissioner of Railways, Mr JF Thallon. The town is surrounded by prime grain growing country and draws grain in from Weengallon, Nindigully, Mungindi, Dirranbandi and Thallon. In the 2012-2013 harvest, Thallon recorded the second largest grain intake in Queensland, behind that of Goondiwindi. Wheat, cotton, chickpeas and oats are just some of the crops grown in the Thallon area which are transported by truck or train into the Port of Brisbane for export.

Next to the giant grain silos, you will find the relaxed free camping area located at the Thallon Recreational Grounds, which includes toilets and showers (key available at the Francis hotel or through the Town Officer). For those looking for some comforts, there is power available by contacting the Town Officer. If you're wanting to stretch your leg or wet a line for Yellowbelly and Murray Cod, take a stroll past the grain silos down to 'Barneys Beach' perched on the banks of the Moonie River.

Thallon's Francis Hotel is not a pub to pass! It serves home-style food and barista made espresso coffee. Browse the historic photographs and artifacts lining the pub walls; write a postcard to family and friends and post it at the post office located within the pub. Browse the pub's visitor information stand to plan your next adventure. Pick up two self-guided history trail brochures to delve in to Thallon's early European history. The "Roads of Yesterday", a short driving tour and the "Old Town" walking tour bring to life Bullarmon, the once-vast pastoral station on which Thallon now stands. The Francis also offers accommodation, delicious pub meals and a general store where you can buy groceries and phone credit.
