Located 520 km from Brisbane via the Burnett Highway and 249 m above sea-level, Monto is a charming rural centre which is one of the newest towns in Capricornia, having come into existence as recently as 1924.

Later that year, with his brother Charles, Thomas Archer moved sheep into the area. At the same time Adolphus Henry Trevethan settled on the vast Rawbelle Station which spread over 1000 sq. miles.
