Clermont

Clermont Mackay Region Queensland

Clermont - Mackay Region - Queensland

The temptation of gold enticed settlers to the town back in 1861 making Clermont one of oldest inland settlements in Tropical Queensland. However the town had to be relocated to higher ground after floods ravaged the town. Remainders of the town are still visible to this day with an offbeat reminder of just how high the flood waters rose, visitors can view The Piano in the Tree in Capricorn Street.

Take a free guided tour at Blair Athol, of a real working coal mine where you will also be shown the sights of the city and Clermont Museum and a visit to the Historic Copperfield Store is well worth it.
