Blackall Holidays Overview

 

Blackall is a small remote rural community located 950 kilometres west of Brisbane in the heart of the Queensland Outback. A long history of cattle, sheep and wool production in the area and the town has flourished, with a few famous characters such as Jackie Howe who lived and worked in the region. Today, cattle production is the main staple industry, but the region has diversified into other industries. Cypress Pine sawmilling and tourism and the town is thriving.
 
The town of Blackall was first explored by Thomas Mitchell in 1846 and surveyed in 1887. In Australian mythology, the black stump has always loomed as beyond the black stump was ‘no man’s land’. In reality, and less romantic, the term originated from the initial surveyor who used the stump to place the theodolites on to establish the latitude and longitude observations as part of the survey. As folklore goes, country to the west of Blackall was considered to be ‘beyond the black stump’.
 
A visit to Blackall is a step back into history. The Black Palace artefacts are the largest group of Aboriginal drawings known to exist in Central Queensland and are located on Marston Station. In 1885 the Pioneer Bore was drilled and a replica of the stem operated percussion drilling rig is on display in town.
