Information

Allora, known as the 'Best little town on the Downs', is a genuinely charming and interesting small, rural settlement with a large number of well preserved historic buildings. It is located at the point where the New England Highway crosses Dalrymple Creek.

Allora is located 158 km south-west of Brisbane, 25 km south of Toowoomba and 467 m above sea level.

Often the origin of a town's name is pure guesswork. In the case of Allora there is some evidence that there was a word in the local Aboriginal language - 'gnallorah' meaning 'swampy place'. It fits because the Dalrymple Creek can be very swampy.
