Barringun was once a thriving town which was serviced by four hotels, and a wide variety of other shops. The town was a stopover point for shearers, drovers, mailmen, swaggies, labourers and Cobb & Co coaches - supporting movement through the Darling Downs and across into western New South Wales and Queensland. Today the town has one pub and a population of four. It is quite common in the late afternoon to see half the town's population - the publican and one customer - at the pub. The rest of this once thriving town has now disappeared with only a couple of deserted buildings remaining.

UPDATE: January 2018: the Tattersalls Hotel has been destroyed by a fire.
