Sometimes referred to as the valley's "Verandah Post Town, because of all its old style verandah posts, Bowraville is a great place to glimpse earlier Australian history.

In the early days it was the home of cedar cutters and bullockies and then later became a commercial centre for the rich agricultural region surrounding the town. Such was it's importance, it was the centre of the shire council until the mid 1980's.

Tourism, art and crafts are now features of the community and many of the older buildings have now been turned into art and craft shops suuch as the Bank Gallery.

A visit to the Eliza and Joseph Newman Folk Museum is well worth the visit, taking time to look at the past history of this fascinating town.

While in Bowraville, take a trip out to Dunggir National Park and enjoy the wonderful scenery of this unique National Park.
