We stopped at Blackall on our trip from Barcaldine to Charleville in outback Queensland. Blackall is home to the Queensland Black Stump - a survey point used when mapping the state. This is located about a block from the Highway and is worth a stop - you will be able to say you have been 'Beyond The Black Stump'!

Blackall is a very pretty little town with lovely wide streets and well maintained gardens along the median strip. We stopped at the Visitor Information Centre to find out about the area and were greeted by a lovely old man working in the gardens. We asked how he was and he replied - " Gotta be good when you live in this great place - you should stay".  He was very friendly and chatty - what a good person to have working at local park.

We looked around town and discovered that the town pool contains an artesian spa - very warm and relaxing and extremely popular with visitors. There are plenty of shade-sails at the pool to protect from the hot midday sun.

I have been told that the Blackall Woolscour Centre is well worth a visit while in town - it is Australia's last remaining steam driven wool washing plant. Unfortunately we ran out of time to see the Woolscour Centre so will put it on our list for the next visit. 

We have since been on a tour of the Woolscour and highly recommend you head out and learn about its operation and the work of many people to save this important part of Australian History
