ABOUT Moura

Moura is a central point and vibrant community for the people who serve its local industries – the farmers, growers and miners and their families that help to make Queensland great.

Lying in the heart of the Dawson Valley, not far from the Dawson River, its parklands and public facilities, festivals and events, river fishing and water sports attract thousands of visitors each year.

The quality of life rings true in Moura – hard-working people who know how to have fun at the end of the week make the most of their surroundings.

For almost six decades, coal mining has been pivotal to the town. Entering from either the south or east the huge open cut pits can be seen from the highway.

You can almost set your watch by the 150th Meridian marker; the intangible line that measures Eastern Standard Time. Located on the east side of town, two large hollowed rocks sit side by side. Look through the holes and line them up, and you’re standing in the direct path of the meridian.

Every fortnight, it’s non-stop auction action at the cattle sale yards. A spell-binding experience for the uninitiated, things happen fast as a sea of Akubra hats huddle together, their wearers listening intently to the calls and gabble of the auctioneer.
