Childers is a large country town in Queensland situated on the Bruce Highway - not far from Hervey Bay. This is a fertile farming area with deep red volcanic soil which supports sugar cane and fruit growing.

Of course most people in Australia remember Childers for the fire at the Palace Hotel in 2000 which claimed the lives of several backpackers who were working in the area. There is a memorial to the lives lost in this deliberately lit fire.

This seems to be a very busy town on the highway with some lovely old timber buildings and beautifully maintained parks for visits to stop and enjoy a break from driving..
