SPRINGSURE

Springsure is a great little town in the shadows of the Carnarvan National Park. Springsure is clearly a caring community and the treatment of the WW2 losses and War Memorial

The area was first explored by Ludwig Leichhardt and his favourable reports encouraged settlers to move in.

Today, Springsure is a pastoral settlement serving cattle farms as well as sunflower, sorghum, wheat and chickpea plantations.

A cliff face in the hills surrounding Springsure is known to the area as Virgin Rock, named because it once looked like the Virgin Mary cradling the baby Jesus, although years of erosion have blurred the original resemblance.

Springsure is the hub for several coal mines such as the Minerva Mine and the Rolleston Mine. These mines are letting Springsure prosper. It is also a staging point for expeditions to the Carnarvon National Park.

The Presbyterian Church is a nice standout compared to the modern offer.

The Springsure Museum is represented by these historic buildings.

The Springsure Hotel is a modern and surviving structure.

This place is easy to skip through. To have refreshment or rest time will be in order.
