Information

Monto is a small rural service town near Cania Gorge National Park. It is located 477km from brisvane via the Bruce & Burnett Hwys.

Prior to the arrival of Europeans the area around Monto was home to people from the Gureng Gureng Aboriginal language group. The area consisted mostly of large pastoral holdings until the 1870s. Gold was discovered in 1871 causing a rush to the Cania field, though yields were intermittent. Around the 1870s the district became infested with speargrass which resulted in sheep being replaced by cattle. Mining finally ended in the early 1900s. Monto was the first town in Queensland to be designed under town planning techniques and it was gazetted in 1924.

Enjoy some good old country hospitality and 'tucka' at 1 of 2 town pubs or at the RSL. In town you will find cafes, great coffee, supermarkets, Australia Post, banking, pharmacy and a variety of shops. There is also a medical centre and a hospital. Bowls and golf can be enjoyed whilst visiting Monto.
