Situated half way between Toowoomba and Warwick on the wide fertile plains of the Darling Downs, Clifton is a quiet town welcoming visitors with country hospitality and a relaxed atmosphere.

Once a large wheat growing area, the shire now has a diverse range of agriculture including cattle, cereal crops, sunflowers, peanut and honey production and much more.

The Clifton and District Historical Museum, located in the former Butter Factory building has a wide collection of household and agricultural items providing an insight into the area’s pioneering past.

The classic streetscape of Clifton and it’s building’s facades have been used in a number of Australian movies including The Thornbirds.

Just a short drive north of Clifton is Nobby and the well known Rudd’s Pub, which has an extensive display of historic memorabilia and photographs of the area’s pioneering past. The Pub is dedicated to Steele Rudd, who lived in the area, and found inspiration there for his stories in ‘On Our Selection’. Just a short stroll from the Pub is the Sister Kenny memorial. Sister Elizabeth Kenny also lived in the area and was known for her revolutionary treatment for the victims of polio.

Accommodation in the Clifton district ranges from farmstays, bed and breakfasts, pub stays, and a caravan park.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
