Piano in the Tree

Clermont is a sprawling and unmistakably Queensland town perched on a hill. There is a replica piano high in the crook of a gum tree as a reminder of the 1916 floodwaters that really did leave a piano perched 32 feet up a tree.

It is believed the town drew its name from Clermont-Ferrand in France, the home of Oscar de Satge who at the time was the owner of Wolfang Downs. Source: http://www.queensland.com
