Stop a while in Allora and find out why it's known as the friendliest town on the Downs. It's old-time streetscape beckons you to take a walk. Mary Poppins' author, PL Travers lived in Allora as a child. You can see Mary Poppins House (circa 1880) which was once the Australian Joint Stock Bank managed by her father Travers Goff, and a carved stone monument in her honour in the park. You'll see many timber buildings typical of late 1800s and early 1900s architecture including the CBC Bank, the Railway Hotel, the old Shire Chambers, the Queensland National Bank, the Commercial Hotel and St David’s Anglican Church. Allora offers easy access to Glengallon Homestead and the Goomburra section of Main Range National Park. With a relaxed country town feel, Allora is a perfect rest stop. Settle in for a counter lunch at one of the three historic pubs, or pack your own picnic and pick a spot for a tranquil break in the parks which line Dalrymple Creek that meanders through the town.
