Instagram post 17993751202312854 Moura Miner’s Memorial is a memorial dedicated to all 50 mine workers who were tragically killed in either mine disasters or individual fatalities in the Moura Kianga Open Cuts and Underground Mines.

The project has been developed by the MOURA Miners' Memorial Moura Community Progress Inc in consultation with the Moura Coal and Country Historical Society and Banana Shire Council.

Under a domed roof, 50 shafts of light will beam to a central circle surrounded by terraced seating on the ‘coal wall’. The memorial will serve as the town’s gathering space to remember all lives lost since 1961. Viewers will enter the memorial via a ‘mine shaft’ entrance where the names of those who died are listed.

Instagram post 17857296719404819 At 9.50pm on the 5th of September 2014, at Angellala Creek Bridge approximately 30km south of Charleville on the Mitchell Highway, Australian transport history was made. A truck carrying 53 tonnes of ammonium nitrate caught fire, crashed and exploded at Angellala Creek.

The blast radius was felt over 30km away and had Charleville locals thinking it was an earthquake. 

The force of the explosion injured eight people.

Today, the road bridge has been rebuilt, but signs of the explosion still remain, and the story is told through an interpretive area at the site.

Be sure to stop and read the full story when you pass through.
