Warra Attractions

Kogan Creek Power Station

Drive out and visit the Kogan Creek Power Station's viewing platform to observe Australia’s most environmentally friendly coal-fired power station. This power station contains the largest single generating unit in Australia and has one of the lowest environmental impacts of any coal-fired power station nationwide, with low levels of water consumption and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. The neighbouring Kogan Creek Coal Mine supplies coal to the power station via a four kilometre overland conveyor belt.

Turn west off the Warrego Highway at the locality of Brigalow, 18 kilometres northwest of Warra and 8 kilometres southeast of Boonarga onto Banana Bridge Road (signposted to Kogan and Kogan Creek Power). Follow this road for 10 kilometres to the power station.


Ludwig Leichhardt Monument

Within walking distance of the highway and between the Anglican Church and the river there is a Campsite Monument built in honour of the explorer Ludwig Leichhardt who, in 1844, he and his party camped beside the river before travelling north. The area around the monument is maintained by the local progress and heritage society.

Richard Best Memorial Park

This park is home to the restored former Warra Railway Station. The station houses the Progress and Heritage Society Museum that is filled with mementos of a past era with displays changing regularly.

Located on the corner of Robinson & Talbot Street.

Warra Cemetery

Cemeteries are very interesting places to stroll through especially if history is something of interest. The oldest grave in the Warra Cemetery dates back to 1902.

Turn south off the Warrego Highway just east of the village of Warra onto Cemetery Lane. The cemetery is approximately 500 metres on the left hand side.

Warra Hotel

Established in 1906, the historical Warra Hotel, is worth a visit. It is a grand rambling structure and a fine example of the architecture that has become commonly known as 'Queenslander'. Meals and refreshments are available and the publican, who has been in the hotel for as long as anyone can remember, will be very happy to have a yarn on life in Warra and what there is to see and do in the area.

Located between the Richard Best Memorial Park and the railway line.
