St George is a popular weekend getaway for Gold Coast and Brisbane residents since the town is just 390 kilometres away from Queensland's main cities. It is situated on the intersection of several highways including Moonie Highway, Balonne Highway, Carnarvon Highway, and Castlereagh Highway. If you're planning to visit this town, make sure to rent a car so you can easily get around and check out its neighbouring cities. You can also book a flight to Cunnamulla, Toowoomba, Thargomindah, or Brisbane at St George Airport.
With a car rental in St George, you can have easy access to its cultural centre, information centre, bowling centre, swimming pool, showground, and golf club. Catch the St George show which is held every Labour Day. This event is the perfect time to mingle with the locals, have a drink at the bar, and watch rodeo shows. St George is also a known fishing site because of its location on the Balonne River. Sir Thomas Livingstone Mitchell named the town after St George's Day because that was the time he crossed the river back in 1846.
