Greenmount is a lovely country township surrounded by dairy farms, horse studs and various crops. Formally known as Emu Creek, Greenmount is an easy 25 kilometre drive from Toowoomba, on the outskirts of the Darling Downs.
Take a break for a barbecue in Greenmount’s Bicentennial Park next to the Memorial Hall. The Hall is a rare and beautiful pressed metal ceiling and stage.
The Greenmount Cemetery is the final resting place of Jack Slattery. He was the character ‘Cranky Jack’ in the novel ‘On Our Selection’ by Arthur Hoey Davis, better known as Steele Rudd – one of Australia’s most famous writers who grew up in the local area. Take the time to explore the town’s other Steele Rudd attractions including his hut and Rudd’s Pub in nearby Nobby.
