The area around Nanango was settled in 1846 after the opening of Queensland to free settlement. Nanango Station was established by William Elliot Oliver, and later owned by Bryce Thomson Barker. In a letter dated 30 January 1861 Barker offered to sell Nanango Station to George Clapperton, who had worked at the station. After Clapperton's death in 1875, his wife sold Nanango station. From 1895 to around 1921, John and James Millis are listed as station proprietors.
