Leyburn’s stately heritage streets roar to life each August, when thousands come to watch cars race in the Historic Motor Sprint. Stop for a beer, a yarn and some real country cooking at the historic Royal Hotel. It’s one of Queensland’s oldest continually licensed pubs, having celebrated its 150th birthday in 2013. You’ll find a friendly sense of community at the Royal – the locals will tell you the fascinating history of the town over a cold beer and great pub fare. Your heritage trail should include Leyburn School, circa 1862; Leyburn cemetery, St Matthew’s Catholic Church and St Augustine’s Anglican Church; Liberator Park which has a memorial to “Z Special Unit” stationed there in World War II; and Leyburn airstrip, the site for the first Australian Motor Racing Grand Prix in 1949.
