Childers Attractions


Apple Tree Creek Markets are held at Apple Tree Creek Sportsground on the second Saturday of each month.

Visit the Childers Indoor Sports Complex, which is located on North Street.

The original Grand Hotel was moved on from Horton to its current site in the 1880's. On the opposite corner is the Federal Hotel (1907) with its much photographed swinging doors and iron lace.

In North Street the Royal Hotel is older still, built in 1894, using timber cut to make way for the railway. The Butcher Shop (1896) was first tiled outside Brisbane and escaped the fire of 1902.

In Churchill Street the Court House was built in 1896 and enlarged in 1900 and the Post Office (1887) has been maintained in its original form.

The National Bank (1895) was built as a branch of the bank of North Queensland and the two storey R.S.L. club was built in 1901 for the C.B.C. Bank. Further up the street is the Soldiers Room Memorial in the Isis Shire Chambers opened in 1926.

Historical Complex
In Taylor Street is the newly established Historical Complex with an impressive sugar cane locomotive imported from England in 1916, a cottage from Isis Central Mill which was once rented out to mill workers for the modest sum of 2 shillings a week, and the old Isis Central Mill School.

The Historical Complex is open between 9.00am and 12noon Monday to Friday.

War Memorial.
The Memorial features cast bronze plaques complete with photographs of those who didn't return home. The room is open from 8.30am to 4.30pm weekdays and is situated beside the Council Chambers in Churchill Street. Admission is free.

Krupp Cannon.
The Howitzer 210mm Mauser was manufactured in Essen Germany in 1916 by Fried Krupp. The cannon was captured in Flanders by the Australian Imperial Force during World War 1.

Childers was only one of two towns in Queensland to receive such a weapon. It was an accolade to the patriotism and loyalty of our young men and in 1922 the cannon was railed to Childers to be used as a lasting memorial to the Great War.

Kanaka Memorial.
Between 1863 and 1904 some 50,000 Kanakas were blackbirded from the Polynesian Islands to labour in the Queensland cane fields. Approximately 14,800 Kanakas were located between Bundaberg and Maryborough.

Woodgate
The beach resort of Woodgate is situated 38 kilometers off the highway along Goodwood and Woodgate Roads. The area boasts a magnificent long white sand beach with the first surf north of the Sunshine Coast.

Prolific numbers of birds including emus, brolgas and jabiru together with kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, possums and reptiles inhabit the national park and surrounding areas.

The many walking tracks area a great way to discover the flora and fauna of the Woodgate National Park.

Walks range from the 200 metre boardwalk through a tea tree swamp to the 6.2 kilometre Banksia track.

There are some facilities for wheelchair access. Camping is also allowed in the park. Access is only by four wheel drive vehicle.

Woodgate is a wonderful place for a family holiday with many people returning yearly.

Buxton
Located on the banks of the Burrum River is the small, but growing, community of Buxton.

The main attraction for most to Buxton is the fishing and peace and quiet. The riverside park has a barbeque facility and undercover area with an excellent playground for children.

Buxton also has a general store, and community hall and boat ramp. Buxton is also serviced by a Volunteer Rural Fire Brigade.

Pro-Sky Flight Training
Learning to fly is not as difficult or a expensive as you may think.

Our goal at Pro-Sky is to provide with a very relaxed environment to do that in, along with the highest level of instruction.

On completion of the course you’ll be issued with a Pilot’s Certificate and a set of Pro-Sky wings.
