Moonie, Queensland

Upcoming Events in Western Downs

Moonie image

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, Moonie Yabbie Races are a one-of-a-kind quirky country event run each March by the Moonie Sports Club. You’ll find Moonie on the crossroads of the Moonie Highway and Leichhardt Way. 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.
