St George, QLD


On the banks of the Balonne River is the Western Downs town of St George. It is the last post in southern Queensland before the heavily populated east coast finally gives way to the sparseness of the outback. The river crossing was discovered by explorer Sir Thomas Mitchell on St George’s Day, 1846, giving the town its name.

St George is often referred to as the inland fishing capital of Queensland with lakes and rivers nearby, which also support the area’s rich cotton, grape and grain industry.
