Blackall Saleyards & Transit Centre

The iconic Blackall Saleyards, established in 1968, is situated in the heart of western Queensland's cattle country. Today the facility is the major selling centre in Western Queensland. 

Drawing cattle from a vast geographical area, over 130,000 head of cattle pass through these yards each year.

The regular Thursday sales commence at 8.30am and includes a monthly weaner & store sale. These sales are well supported by all major processors, feedlots and re-stockers.

The Blackall Saleyards are both EU and Organic accredited, boosting a modern weighing facility, bull selling ring and 2 bay washdown area.

Visitors can experience the action of live selling from the purpose built viewing platform. A country style canteen operates during sales.

Be Aware and Prepared - Get Ready 2020

Wherever you live in Queensland make sure that your home and contents insurance cover is enough to cover the cost of rebuilding your home and/or replacing your contents or possessions.

Contact your insurer and start asking questions.

1. What disasters does the policy cover?

2. How do they define each disaster?

3. How much will the policy cover?

4. Does the policy provide enough insurance to cover the cost of rebuilding your house and any extra costs you might incur?

5. Is your insurance adequate to cover the replacement of your possessions?

6. Are your possessions covered for damage caused by potential local hazards such as storm, flood and bushfire?

7. Are you covered for the cost of temporary accommodation if your home is unhabitable?
