Clermont Activities

The Murals

Possibly the most impressive murals in Australia, the quartet of railway carriages painted by Glen Gillard in 1999 and repainted in 2010 are clever illustrations of the activities which have made Clermont prosperous.

Hood's Lagoon and the Pioneer & Centenary Park 

Hood's Lagoon and Pioneer and Centenary Park are located between Drummond Street and Lime Street. The first town of Clermont was established on the northern banks of the Hood's Lagoon in 1862.

You can walk around the lagoon. The distance is 1.8 km along which there are a series of memorials, monuments and sculptures depicting Mary McKillop, Billy Sing, the northern Hairy-nosed Wombat and the pioneers of the district.

Clermont Historical Centre

Located near the junction of the Gregory and Peak Downs highways, about 2 km north of the town centre, is the new Clermont Historical Centre which enhances the town's original museum with themed exhibitions focusing on local identities including Trooper Billy Sing the Gallipoli sniper and Rose Harris who was one of the local heroines of the 1916 Great Flood.
