Eidsvold - Scenic Drives

As you journey through the different parts of the region you will always be greeted with a firm handshake, a wide smile and a warm welcome.

Take the alternative route from the north to Eidsvold via Monto and discover the Bunyip Hole in the Mulgildie district before heading to Abercorn, a rural community located approximately 30km north of Eidsvold and gateway to Wuruma Dam.  Abercorn is a quaint little town which has its own Primary School opened on 3 May 1927. The town is believed to be named after a thoroughbred horse from the area.  An optional side trip to Wuruma Dam can be taken before heading to Eidsvold with its beautiful parks and gardens and town murals.

Located west of Eidsvold on Camboon Defence Road marvel at the hard work and effort put into the historic Stone Pitched Bridges. The bridges are no longer suitable to take traffic; however they still stand honouring the people who toiled to make them the memorable feature they are today. Visit the Rawbelle Cemetery that stands as a memorial to those who lived out their lives in this area and note where the old township was sited.

Take a scenic drive south through the fertile river flats of the Grosvenor District and view fantastic farming country with vast areas of irrigated crops, citrus, pecans, asparagus and stone fruits where once dairy farms provided milk and cream to small factories which manufactured butter and cheese products for the local towns.  Pass through the Grosvenor area crossing the bridge over the Burnett River, visit the cemetery and return to the highway via Malmoe Road.  Continue south to O’Bil Bil returning to Eidsvold via the Coonambula Eidsvold Road and the Burnett Highway past the Eidsvold Siltstone quarry, Eidsvold Cattle Saleyards and the RM Williams Australian Bush Learning Centre.
