Bucket-list experiences to tick off in Childers

With its green rolling hills, rich red soil and streets laced with masonry buildings, exploring Childers is a must-do for all visitors to the region. Take a look at these bucket list experiences for the perfect break these Summer holidays.

Explore old-world charm

Boasting more than 25 spectacular heritage-listed buildings, you’ll be sure to discover the unique history of this picturesque town. Wander the main street of Childers and look out for the iconic Paragon Theatre designed particularly for our warmer climate and the beautifully preserved architecture of The Post Office; it’ll be like stepping back in time.


Taste authentic, Sicilian-made wine

Rich with wineries, Childers is known for its award-winning drinks. Spend the day touring with friends stopping in at the ever-so-popular Hill of Promise Winery and Vintner’s Secret Vineyard. Don’t forget to pack a picnic to enjoy the beautiful winery views over a glass of wine.


Get up close to wildlife

Have you ever wanted to pat a koala or hold a baby alligator? Well, now’s your chance! Snakes Downunder Reptile Park & Zoo is the perfect family day out with meerkats, crocodiles, kangaroos and more. Be sure to bring your camera for the crocodile feeding show!


Go fruit-stall hopping

Childers’ produce will be sure to whet your appetite for all things deliciously local. Known for avocados and macadamias, keep a look out for farms selling their produce by roadside to pick up some goodies.


Check out the latest exhibition

Housed in the magnificent Palace Hotel, visiting Childers Art Space and Backpacker Memorial is a must. Explore the latest exhibition, wander this beautiful heritage-listed building and take in the history with the Backpacker Memorial.


Tantalize your taste buds

While in town, you can’t go past local favourite, Mamminos Gourmet Ice Cream. Made in the heart of Childers, tasting this ice cream is quintessential to your visit. We recommend the signature Red Dirt Jaffa Macadamia – yummy!


Discover medicinal marvels

Recently celebrating the building’s 150 anniversary, The Old Pharmacy houses one of Australia’s largest collections of pharmaceutical history. Take a guided tour through this awe-inspiring museum and be captivated by the pharmaceutical displays, rare specimens and mysterious potions.
