Nobby is an historic little town in the Darling Downs, located halfway between Toowoomba and Warwick.
Nobby is home to Rudd’s Pub, dedicated to author Steele Rudd, who found inspiration among his drinking partners for his stories in On Our Selection and is a great place to stop for a meal with the pub walls adorned with an extensive display of historic memorabilia and photographs of the area’s pioneering past.
There’s also Sister Elizabeth Kenny, the ‘saint’ who worked with polio treatments prior and the development of a vaccine. Near the hotel, there’s a memorial dedicated to this lady. That’s just a part of the history, with much more told simply by taking a stroll along the town’s main street which is dotted with shopfronts from another era. Take a picnic to the local park which also offers barbecue facilities.
