    Monto Light Horse Support Group preserves the cultural heritage of the Light Horse. Amazingly from this small town there were 138 men in the group in WW II.

    They do have an annual Australian Light Horse Re-Enactment & Reunion in Oct/Nov so this is a great time to visit (I missed it).

    There are lots of items used in World War II, (and some from earlier) including uniforms, saddles, and lots of photo's

    Fishing at Lake Carnia (40K's from Monto town) is great - if you are into fishing that is. Lots of species including perch, bass, yellowbelly. You can catch a good one from boat or shore.

    An annual fishing comp is held each March.

    Be Aware - you need a fishing licence to fish anywhere in Queensland - get one from the local Newsagency, caravan park or ask at the Info building

    The Lister Street Art Walk within the Lister Street Parkland, is worth a quick visit.

    There are many metal and stone sculptures created by local and regional artists.

Monto Off The Beaten Path

    I wasn't in a 4WD so can't vouch for these trips but people I spoke told great stories of their 4WD adventures so if you can - give the place ago.

    Favourite places are:

    Kroombit Tops - There's the remains of a Second World War Liberator bomber up here - steep climbs and great gullies.

    Kalpowar State Forest - 40K's north of Monto, a natural forest, apparently plenty of wildlife and you can camp under the stars....

    Monal Goldfields area - you'll see what it was really like for the early settlers. Apparently roads are as bad as ever.....
