Barcaldine is an iconic outback town and is located in Central West Queensland approximately 440 kilometres west of Rockhampton. The region is one of the largest cattle producing areas in Central Western Queensland. Barcaldine is a productive sheep, wool and macropod harvesting industry received its name from a nearby sheep station ‘Barcaldine Downs’.
 
A small town in Queensland Barcaldine is recognised as the ‘Garden City of the West’. The beautiful gardens and greenery throughout the town will inspire most gardeners. Barcaldine is a natural blending of heritage and culture.
