The town of St George is 513 kilometres due west of Brisbane and the Sunshine and Gold Coasts and sits just inside the region of South West Queensland and on the edge of the outback with its warm dry conditions is very popular for tourists.

St George sits at the junction of several highways including the Castlereagh Highway, the Moonie Highway, the Carnarvon Highway and the Balonne Highway. The only crossing of the Balonne River is the Andrew Nixon Bridge on the Balonne Highway.
Being the gateway to areas further north and west, it’s a busy stopover point for holiday travellers, commercial transport and of course the local airport and an easy drive from the NSW border and Lightning Ridge.
