Location of Chinchilla Motel
Chinchilla, a rural town in the western Darling Downs, is 160 km north-west of Toowoomba and 260 km from Brisbane. It is situated on Charleys Creek, a tributary of the Condamine River. Both the creek and the town have names deriving from Ludwig Leichhardt's expedition of 1844.
More recently the town has undergone rapid population growth as workers move in to build pipelines and associated infrastructure for the coal seam gas (CSG) industry.
Our Name: Derived from the word 'jinchilla' , an Aboriginal word recorded as describing the plentiful stands of cypress pine growing on the Western Downs.
