Home Hill

Situated at the southern approach of the Burdekin Bridge, originally was part of the Inkerman Downs Cattle Station. The town has most amenities to cater for the traveller and a range of sporting interests are catered for including a golf club and a pistol shooting club. This is the gateway to the popular Groper Creek fishing and crabbing spot.

It is home to the famous Ashworth’s Tourist Centre, where under one roof is Ashworth’s Jewellers, Rock Shop and the unbelievable Treasures of the Earth Display. See the murals that depict the district’s rural life and visit the Lion’s Diorama, a tribute to the pioneers and the history of the Burdekin Irrigation Scheme. The Home Hill Harvest Festival is held the first week in November.

Distance from Brisbane (State Capital): 1,266 kilometres.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
