Clermont

Be transported back to Australia's early gold rush days in Clermont and one of the oldest inland settlements in tropical Queensland. First explored by Ludwig Leichardt in 1845, it wasn't until the lure of gold attracted settlers in 1861 that the town flourished. However, in 1916 Clermont was devastated by flood and the town was relocated to a higher site nearby. Today, visitors can still see the remains of the original town site. The Piano in the Tree, in Capricorn Street, is a quirky reminder of the height of the floodwaters. The Clermont Museum has historical artefacts and is home to many machinery displays. Located off the Peak Downs Highway just outside Clermont. Experience a real working coal mine at Blair Athol. Free guided tours leaving from Clermont take you through the workings of the mine on Tuesdays and Fridays at 9.00 a.m. Tour includes a tour of the city sights and Clermont Museum. Morning tea is served at Clermont Museum prior to doing mine tour. After the mine tour you visit the Historic Copperfield Store. Bookings essential by calling Clermont Tourist Information Centre. Meet at the Clermont Caravan or Clermont Tourist Information Centre at 8.45 a.m. Tour returns approximately 1.00 p.m. The Mine tour is free, an AUD6.00 per person fee is charged for entry to the museum which includes morning tea.
