About Bollon


Population: 221

The soil gets redder as you approach the great little western town of Bollon, sitting on the banks of the peaceful Wallam Creek.

At the free caravan and camping area there are toilets and showers and plenty of shady spaces to park the van for a few days on the edge of the picturesque creek. An easy 1.2 kilometre stroll along the creek-side walkway provides access to the little town’s main street. Have your camera ready, as Bollon is famous for emus strolling the streets.

If you do one thing in town, spend the afternoon retracing Bollon’s rural history at the Heritage Centre or browse around the historical shearing display at Deb’s Cafe. For the serious campers and four-wheel drive enthusiasts, Thrushton National Park is 60 kilometres north of Bollon via dirt roads.

Experience the beautiful Balonne Shire your way. Do you prefer to chill out on your own, meet other travellers or get to know a local? Whether you imagine quiet nights by the campfire or the lively atmosphere of a country pub, turn your dreams into reality when you visit the west. As the sign on the Bollon Pub aptly sums up, “there are no strangers here, just friends you haven’t met yet”.
