Killarney

Killarney is one of the scenic gems of the South East Queensland.  Killarney's rolling foothills, deep secluded valleys and dramatic waterfalls provide picture postcard views that will stir your imagination.

Killarney is an old timber and dairying town, named by nostalgic Irish settlers and now the centre of a thriving mixed-farming district, producing meat, potatoes, onions, grain and timber to name a few.

You can visit the Killarney Heritage Centre (located at the RSL Hall in Acacia Street) on weekends which specialises in researching local family history.  It has a grand collection of local historical photos, articles and small artefacts.

Drive east into the mountains and follow the Falls Drive Tourist Route for Brown's Falls, Dagg's Falls and then the spectacular waterfall at Queen Mary Falls National Park, where Spring Creek tumbles dramatically over a 40 metre cliff.  Follow the Falls Drive further to Carrs Lookout for spectacular views over Condamine Gorge.
