Local Area Information
Located on the Capricorn Highway, Blackwater is known as the Coal Capital of Queensland and it really is well worth a visit to the Blackwater International Coal Centre which showcases the Central Highlands Coal Industry. Take advantage of one of the mine tours offered at the Centre and learn more about the industry and the history of the local area with a wander through the interactive displays.
Adjacent to the Coal Centre, Blackwater also boasts a peaceful Japanese Garden, marking the relationship between the town and its Sister City, Fujisawa, Japan.
The Central Highlands is an area with many natural attractions and you can enjoy bushwalking in parks and forests, 4WD in the Blackdown Ranges or enjoy a driving tour through diverse and scenic countryside along one of the local tourist routes.
Gaze in wonder at the vast star-filled night sky...
Take the time to soak up the history of this large and wonderful region and try your luck at the gem fields in quest of a big, sparkling sapphire...
...or just kick back, relax and enjoy a fish or ski at one of the dams in the area.
From sandstone escarpments and sapphire fossicking fields to glistening fresh water springs, the Central Highlands is the perfect place to embark on an adventure.
