Moranbah, Queensland

Moranbah image

Located in the northern part of the Isaac Regional Shire and approximately 200 kilometres southwest of Mackay is Moranbah. One of the youngest towns in Queensland, Moranbah, was created for miners and their families with rich charm and emanating warmth. The town's refurbished town centre includes an interesting water feature and child's play area creating a relaxing atmosphere where you can enjoy a coffee break with friends while entertaining the kids. View the Musical Railway and Musical Table and Chairs - these objects are public art projects commissioned by the Queensland Arts Council in conjunction with the Queensland Music Festival. The objects are situated in the Town Square and are there to be used and enjoyed by visitors and general public. Also situated in Town Square Park, the Australia Remembers Mural is a tribute to all the brave men and women who served in WWII. The mural was a community program generously painted in 1995 by Moranbah State High School students. The Grosvenor Complex in the Town Square houses the library, Coalface Art Gallery and Tourist Visitor Information. For a taste of local arts and crafts, visit the Coalface Gallery to witness the local artistic talent emerging from the area. The town has a rich array of amenities, including a major supermarket, restaurants and cafes, public swimming pool and plentiful sporting facilities. Follow the one kilometre Federation Walk at Moranbah's entrance to the town's infamous Big Red Rhino Bucket. This big bucket is a must-do photo attraction to mark your visit to Moranbah.
