Rows of red rich soil, green macadamia trees dotting the horizon, “hedges” of sugarcane along the roadside and a main street with history and heritage oozing out of its facades – history, heritage, arts, culture, food and wine is all here in Childers.

There is plenty to check out if you are in Childers with the family, one of the largest open air bird aviaries, a snake and reptile park, art gallery, library and the restored 1920’s Paragon Theatre has a schedule of movies and events.

You could spend a whole day here doing wineries with four to visit, all doing a range of wines and other alcoholic beverages based on the local produce grown in the region.

Make sure you take a moment to indulge in gourmet ice-cream famous from the region and head to the Palace memorial which is a touching tribute to those who lost their lives.

From its darker days to new beginnings stop a while under a shady leopard tree and take a break in this heart of sugar cane country.
