Unforgettable Memories

MORANBAH TO MACKAY

This itinerary is an unforgettable mix of rustic outback wilderness, living history, intoxicating art, diverse dining, a touch of little city life and just as many ways to dive into enjoying it. Time to make some memories.

Moranbah

Essentially built for families, you’ll be able to feel the genuine warmth of Moranbah as soon as you arrive. The kids will love the Musical Railway and Musical Table and Chairs in the Town Square. Relax with a cup of coffee and watch the kids transform rustic, artistic installations into musical instruments. Read more

Tieri

Truly the home of the simple country lifestyle, Tieri is a destination of active exploration. Blackwood National Park is 50 kilometres from Tieri and is a rugged outback park. There is a circuit walk that should not be missed in spring as it comes to life thanks to a carpet of wildflowers. Read more

Middlemount

Just 40 minutes from Tieri, Middlemount is an easy stop on this itinerary. Nicknamed the Giant Peanut because of its unique peanut-shaped road layout, Middlemount is another purpose-built mining community. Nestled in the raw beauty of Brigalow country, this quaint little community is active. So much so, that it bred Olympic cyclists Anna and Kerrie Meares. Read more

St Lawrence

It’s time to move on from some of the region’s youngest towns to one of the oldest. St Lawrence is 2 hours and 25 minutes from Middlemount. The town was originally built to service the port of St Lawrence. The beauty of local historical buildings such as the Council Office are a living reminder of times gone by. Read more
