Attractions

Ilfracombe - Isisford Road, Ilfracombe, 4727

The 12 Mile as it has been known since its heyday, is where you can discover a magnificent example of 19th century craftsmanship. Thousands upon thousands of naturally formed flagstones, carefully sorted and then meticulously placed together to form a leak-proof reservoir to retain water so precious to the existence of everything. The stone-pitched overshot is thought to have been constructed in the 1890s when the 12 Mile dam was built. It is located along the stock route between Ilfracombe and Isisford. Essentially a watering stop and Cobb & Co change station, the 12 Mile was also the site of the Royal Mail Hotel which operated between 1893 and around 1916. In the vicinity are shaded picnic tables, plenty of parking/camping grounds, and a self-guided map is available at the Wellshot Centre in Ilfracombe. Please, take only photos and leave only footprints.

18230 Dawson Highway, Moura, 4718

Located one kilometre east of Moura on the Dawson Highway, the 150th Meridian marker shows the position of the imaginary line (150 °E) on which Queensland (Eastern Standard) time is based. At the time of the equinox, a day is exactly 12 hours long anywhere on the Meridian line. The meridian line in Greenwich represents the Prime Meridian of the world, Longitude Zero (0° 0' 0"). Every place on the Earth is measured in terms of its angle east or west from this line. 'Holey rocks' like the ones at the Meridian Marker can be found all around Moura. They are a product of the process used for blasting of rock in Coal Mining. Take a sighting through the holes and you're looking along the 150th Meridian.
