Some interesting details about Ilfracombe:~ 

Ilfracombe is located on the Matilda Highway between Barcaldine and Longreach and has the descriptive title of 'The Hub of the West'.  Originally named after a small town in Devonshire England in 1891, Ilfracombe served as a transport centre for Wellshot Station, which at the time was the largest sheep station in the world for stock numbers.  Ilfracombe continues to serve large sheep and cattle stations and the rural heritage is proudly displayed in a fine collection of antique machinery and farm equipment.  During it's most prosperous retail times the town boasted three hotels, a coach builder, two general stores, butchers, saddler and stock agents.

Ilfracombe is now part of the larger Longreach Shire Council covering an extensive area of inland Queensland.
