Additional Notes Located 52 km south of Bundaberg at the juncture of the Bruce and Isis Highways, Childers is the southern-most township of central Queensland. Childers is approximately 320 kilometres north-west of Brisbane. In 1902 a disastrous fire destroyed most of the southern of the main street but the subsequent rebuilding has resulted in the amazing variety of architectural styles still largely intact today. The area’s primary industries include sugar cane and tomatoes.
