Texas is a picturesque town nestled along the banks of the Dumaresq River in southern Queensland on the state border. Texas was named over a land claim in the 1850's which bore many similarities to one happening in Republic of Texas and Mexico in the United States at the same time. The original town was established on the river flats in 1875 but was relocated after the disastrous floods of 1890 and 1921. Remnants of the original historic township still exist for visitors to see.
