Explorer Thomas Mitchell was the first European in the Thallon district and his initials can still be found on a bloodwood tree near the Moonie River. In 1911, the area was set aside for closer settlement and 780 acres (3.2 km2) were gazetted as a town reserve. With the coming of the railway, the town developed and shops and a hotel were established. Thallon is now a major wheat and woolgrowing area.
