On the banks of the Jordan

The tranquil and charming township of Jericho is situated on the banks of the Jordan River, south of Lake Galilee.  It was originally settled when the railway line reached the banks of the Jordan River in 1885.

An interesting stopping off point is the Crystal Trumpeters in the main street.  The structure was created by local historians to tell the story of how Joshua won the battle of Jericho.

Time your visit with the once a month double feature showing at the smallest operating drive-in theatre in the southern hemisphere, then spend a night or two camping along the serene banks of the Jordan River at Redbank Park. Bring your fishing rods and binoculars as it is a great place to cast a line and bird watch.  

Jericho also has a number of interesting and colourful murals painted by local residents.  One of the most popular is the two goannas having a beer in Darwin Street.
