Clermont - Cities, Towns and Localities
A flourishing town once home to a large gold rush the gold mining heritage of the area can still be experienced today. First settled in the 1860's when gold and copper was discovered nearby.

One of the most devastating floods in Australia's history hit this small town in December 1916 when 35 people were drowned as a result of floodwaters rushing through the town. Later the town was moved to higher ground to escape the river torrents. There is a piano stuck up a tree in Capricorn street to indicate the height of the floodwaters at the time.

The area has a rich Chinese history with many Chinese miners coming into the area to make their fortunes with the gold. Racial riots took place between the whites and Chinese with the Chinese eventually being moved out.

Today the gold is gone and the town has matured into a charming service centre for the region.
