The Blackall Tambo region encompasses over 30,000 square kilometres of stunning outback vistas and scenery.
The townships of Blackall and Tambo are situated on the historic Barcoo River and visitors will experience the warm welcome and hospitality the outback is renowned for. Our history is a story of pioneers and resilience through drought, fire and flood. Sheep, wool and cattle have kept our communities vibrant and proud. Situated on the Landsborough highway there is much to experience and see.
Built around the mid 1970's the Blackall Saleyards were established as a structure to sell local cattle and have been in operation for many years. Today the facility is the major selling centre in Western Queensland and source cattle from Northern and far Western regions.
Over 120,000 cattle pass through the yards each year. Cattle Sales are held each Thursday and are an incredible sight to see with over 100 people attending. Visitors can experience the action of a live sale from the purpose built viewing desk constructed in 2017.
