Rolleston

Rolleston is located in the Bauhinia Shire of Queensland's Central Highlands and is the nearest town to the world renowned Carnarvon Gorge and Carnarvon National Park. Rolleston is 70 kilometres east of Springsure and can be reached by travelling along the Great Inland Way. A journey through the Arcadia Valley; once home to the indigenous 'Karinal' tribe, takes you to the unusual Lake Nuga Nuga, believed by the local indigenous tribe to be the home of the mythological male and female Rainbow Serpent's called 'Mundagarri' who live under the two peaks dominating the Lakes northern shoreline. Boasting a diverse pastoral history, the township of Rolleston was also famous for the notorious Patrick and James Kenniff - Queensland's last legendary bushrangers. The boundary rider's hut from 'Purbook' has been resited and restored at Beazley Park as a memorial to the area's pioneers. Rolleston is also the closest town to Lake Nuga Nuga and sits above a natural gas field.
