Monto

Gateway to Cania Gorge National park, Monto is home to a long-running dairy industry and a variety of cultural, historic and artistic experiences. Stroll through Lister Street Parkland viewing the metal and sandstone sculptures by local and visiting artists. Stop into the Pioneer Cottage Visitor Information Centre for tips from a local on what to do and spend the weekend at the RV 72-hour stopover area. Learn the history of Monto at the Monto Historical and Cultural Complex which houses a museum and art gallery featuring cultural displays, photography, art from local artists, and historical exhibitions. The complex also extends outside to a group of pioneer buildings. You can also enjoy a scenic bush getaway in Coominglah State Forest and Kalpowar State Forest and discover Mulgildie Bunyip, a testament to the legend of the Bunyip hole, historic goldfields and cemetery.

Go off-grid at Kroombit Tops with a true bush camping experience including fire-rings for traditional bush cooking. Hit the path less travelled to see the remains of WWII Liberator bomber, Beautiful Betsy that crashed at Kroombit Tops in 1945. Kroombit Tops is only accessible by 4WD in dry weather, so let some air out of your tyres and get exploring.
