Condamine

Locality

The township of Condamine is located south of Miles on the meandering Condamine River, well-known for its excellent fishing.

Condamine is famous for the invention of the Condamine, or Bullfrog Bell. Designed to be hung from the necks of working bullocks, the bells ensured the stockmen were able to locate their cattle when left to roam and graze. Stockmen were even able to determine the distance of a bullock by the sound of its bell. Visitors can learn more of this history when they stop to read the inscription on the side of the large replica bell in Bell Park.

Surrounding Condamine are many feedlots and a freshwater fish farm. Book ahead at the Condamine Hotel for a tour of these properties.
