Texas

Texas - Southern Downs - Queensland

The scenic town of Texas has an animated past of floods and land claim with the remains of the earlier historic township still in existence for visitors to see. The main attraction is the Dumaresq River providing a beautiful backdrop as the town nestles along its banks. The river continues to weave its way through serene hills, spilling over rocks and winding past the rich river flats peppered with old tobacco barn remains that were once a significant industry in the area.

The locals believe that the Dumaresq River and the Glenlyon Dam offer the finest Murray cod fishing in Australia or other activities include camping, hiking, sailboarding and canoeing. Learn more about the township at the Texas Historical Museum and for views of the area, head to Beacon Lookout.
