Explore Theodore, QLD


We’re pushing towards another part of the Dawson River this afternoon to an outback town that has a link to Australia’s capital. Theodore, one of the first towns in Queensland to have roundabouts and that’s because the town planner was Walter Burleigh Griffin. This is the same bloke who planned the capital of Australia, Canberra. Got him to blame him for that worn out front left!!

We push towards another part of the Dawson River this afternoon, Theodore

The Pub in Theodore is another oddity, It’s owned by the community. That’s right not a community-owned bank but a community-owned pub and its heritage listed because of its unusual design. One of the must-dos in Theodore is an afternoon sunset cruise on the Dawson River, a cold beer with a few of the locals. The Dawson is not only pretty, but she’s also the lifeblood of this part of Central Queensland.

The Theodore Hotel is a clean and friendly place to stay

Bit of luxury for us tonight in the Cabins behind the pub. Quality accommodation and I am looking forward to an afternoon on the deck and a good night’s sleep after a few days in the swag. Theodore is definitely worth checking out.

You can also contact the OQTA for more info. The Sandstone Wonders website is also worth a look for detailed information on the region: https://sandstonewonders.com/towns/Theodore/

Don’t forget to check out Episode 38 of the Campr series for our guide to the town of Theodore.
