Allora has a strong sense of history. A signed Heritage Trail takes walkers from one historic building to the next, street banners reflect the theme, and a series of murals at the gates of the showground depict local milestones. The town was the childhood home of P.L Travers who wrote the Mary Poppins stories, and the fallen soldier's memorial is one of only two Boer War memorials in Queensland.  The Allora and District Historical Society manages a number of Heritage buildings in the area, including the Drayton Street Museum and the Forde & Warwick Street Museum.
