About Dajarra

Population: 150


Believe it or not, Dajarra was once the largest cattle trucking depot in the world, processing thousands of head of cattle from as far away as Western Australia.

The ruins of the holding yards will give you a good idea of the magnitude of the cattle trucking industry in Dajarra’s heyday.  Today, Dajarra is an outback town between Boulia and Mount Isa with a rich Aboriginal heritage.
