Description

Allora is known as 'the best little town on the Downs'. The town nestles beside Dalrymple Creek just off the highway between Toowoomba and Warwick.replacenewlinereplacenewlineYou may well think you are taking a trip into history when driving down the main street, a street described by one travel writer as 'one of the three best streetscapes in Australia'. Make sure you visit Saint David's Anglican Church built in 1888, and reputably one of the finest examples of a timber church in country Queensland.replacenewlinereplacenewlineAllora has a strong sense of history. A signed Heritage Trail takes walkers from one historic building to the next, street banners reflect the theme, and a series of murals at the gates of the showground depict local milestones. The town was the childhood home of P.L Travers who wrote the Mary Poppins stories, and the fallen soldier's memorial is one of only two Boer War memorials in Queensland.replacenewlinereplacenewlineAlso of interest is Glengallan Homestead and Heritage Centre. Now restored, it embodies the history of the Allora region since the late 19th Century. A major draw card on the Heritage Building Trail, Glengallan divulges a fascinating insight into the workings of a pastoral station.
