Emmet was once a thriving railway siding with a population of 30. Today with only two residents, it has a picnic shelter and an interesting historical display in the revamped railway station. Emmet is the western gateway to the spectacular Idalia National Park where dry mulga scrub and rocky escarpments are home to the yellow footed rock wallaby.
