Montrose on Moore B & B

A small town with a big heart, tree lined streets and a great public park, Moore is an excellent jumping off point for riding, walking or cycling the northern section of the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail.

Located in the Brisbane River valley and conveniently placed on the D’Aguiler Highway at the base of the Balfour Range, Moore (population 315) has a B & B, free camping in the centre of town, two cafes and every third Saturday of the month is market day at the Moore Solders Memorial Hall and Supper Room Art Gallery. There is a servo in nearby Colinton.


Moore was part of the Moore family Colinton Estate in 1902. In 1910 the railway reached Moore and soon after a shelter shed, cattle yards and loading bank were added. The Williams family, who still remain in the district, owned the increasingly derelict historic ‘Stonehouse‘ former homestead and inn located at the foot of the Blackbutt Range that was a popular coach stop.
