Liz Hill 0 1084

If you do one thing in town, make it the Bollon Heritage Centre. Nestled in the heart of the main street, it's easy to spend the afternoon retracing Bollon's history. Even the keenest history buff will be pleasantly surprised by the range of artefacts and stories that narrate the town's rural history and Aboriginal culture. Be sure to check out the momentos of visiting politicians displayed on the walls.

South west of St George, Dirranbandi is a small country town that comes alive through the cotton harvest months. If you have heard of the famous Cubbie Station, then you will be interested to know that the largest irrigated cotton farm in the southern hemisphere is only a stone's throw away from this small town. As you drive into Dirranbandi, you'll pass by the town's levee bank which is famous for having saved the town from flooding on more than one occasion.

The Unique Egg

St George

Liz Hill 0 979

In an unassuming small low set brick building in the main street of town, you will find the humble emu egg carved into a stunning, illuminated piece of art at the Unique Egg. Local character and artisan Steve Margaritis - or 'Stavros' as we know him - has carved an amazing variety of patterns and scenes on each egg and illuminated them. This is the world's only display of hand carved, illuminated emu eggs, which have been gifted as far as the White House!
