Experience the Amby-ence, Amby is perhaps one of the most relaxing and unassuming towns within the outback region
Amby, originally called Amby Creek, is perhaps one of the most relaxing and unassuming towns within the outback region. It forms part of the eastern boundary of the outback region and can best be described as where the grain and the grazing belts meet.
Enjoy the local charm
Renowned for its country hospitality, stop and meet the locals and apparantly you can take up the challenge of the 'no horse' golf course.(What the heck is the 'no horse' golf course? If any locals know, please shoot through an email). The Old Stage Changeover Shanty - known to the locals as Netting Hole - dates back to 1875 and is located on the northern side of town, along the Warrego Highway near Amby Downs waterhole.
Relax and unwind
Amby Quarry, located on the western side of town, is a lava flow of pure basalt ten metres deep, five kilometres wide and sixty-four kilometres long. It is quarried for construction of roads, bridges and dams. Fossils can be found occasionally in the lava.(and at the bar of the Amby Hotel on a Friday night)
