It has a friendly and welcoming community who take pride in their town. With a consistent healthy climate of low humidity, winter temperatures rarely drop into single figures. The town was drought proofed during the 1970’s by raising the weir on the Burdekin River. It has fantastic primary and secondary education opportunities; the private schools are amongst the oldest most established in the state. This is also a popular nomad retiree base being at the intersection of several grey nomad travel routes: The Great Inland Way (accessing Savannah Way) and the Overland Way.
