Nestled between Mt Fort Cooper and Mt White, 100km south-west along the Peak Downs Highway from Mackay, lies the small town of Nebo, which shares its name with the Jordanian mountain from which Moses caught his first glimpse of the Promised Land. And the land around this Northern Bowen Basin town in central Queensland has fulfilled its promise to early settlers as a reliable producer of prime beef and grain. A hotel, motel and caravan-camping park offer travellers the chance to put their feet up before retracing the area's past in the Nebo Museum. The annual town-stopper is the annual Graham Stewart Memorial Rodeo held over the last weekend in May, while Nebo also regularly hosts spectacular campdraft and cutting events for skilled horsemen and their mounts. The locals get to strut their craftwork, poetry and home-brewed beer at the Christmas County Fair held each December in the Nebo Memorial Hall.
