As the name suggests, Springsure got its name from the permanent springs in the creek and gullies in the area.  The Staircase Range Cutting, built in 1905 by Chinese labour, pays tribute to the early wagon trails, once the lifeblood for the township. The Staircase Range is a sandstone escarpment  that has naturally formed in the shape of a staircase. Sitting in a delightful valley with spectacular Mount Zamia and the famous Virgin Rock overlooking the town, Springsure is home to the Zamia Parklands.
