Description

Moonie, the oil capital of Queensland is a tiny settlement on the intersection of the Leichhardt and Moonie Highways.

And they're racing! Not an unusual call in the horseracing obsessed country, but in Moonie the highlight of the year is the Yabbie Races. Billed as the race that stops the outback, the Moonie Yabbie Races are a one-of-a-kind quirky country event run each November by the Moonie Sports Club. Race action, fashions on the field, food and live entertainment make for the best day out you'll have all year.

You'll find Moonie on the crossroads of the Moonie and Leichhardt Highways. It is the site of Australia's first commercial oil field. Established in 1961, it still operates today. For a small town, Moonie is a vibrant place.

You can picnic at the Rural Transaction Centre, browse local arts and crafts or experience the Moonie Heritage Trail. At Moonie Crossroads you'll see brilliant murals depicting the history of the town and a giant cod caught in local waters.
