Cambooya, Queensland

Cambooya image

The little village of Cambooya is in the heart of Steele Rudd Country. Australian author Arthur Hoey Davis, who wrote under the pen name 'Steele Rudd' and is best known for 'On Our Selection', spent much of his childhood on his family's small block at Emu Creek near East Greenmount. A replica of Rudd's slab-and-shingle hut stands in Greenmount as a display of subsistence farmers' way of life, as depicted in 'On Our Selection'. The Soldiers' Memorial Hall near Greenmount is another interesting local building. In Federation Park at Vale View, explore native vegetation. In Cambooya's main street, The Bull and Barley Inn has recently been restored to reflect its original 1900s old world atmosphere. You'll find memorabilia and photographs adorning the walls, with all beverages requiring cooling being chilled in the Inn's original cedar chiller box. There is a restaurant and accommodation available on site.
