Historic Childers
- The National Trust Town

The small historic cane growing town of Chliders on the Bruce Highway is the southern gateway to the Bundaberg region. Famed for its historic buildings and Leopard Tree’s (Caesalpinea ferrea) that line the main street this pleasant town has plenty for the visitor to do and see.

You will notice that one side of the main street has a distinct architectural style to the other. This is because in 1902 one side was completely burnt down in a fire. Most of the towns important buildings now reside on the older side of the street.

Cattle, sugar, and tourism are now the biggest industries in the area. Located within the Capricorn Coast region, there is plenty for the visitor to see and do.
