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.

  • That's why it is important to understand your risk and have a plan in place to help reduce the impact of storms on you, your loved ones, home and business.

How to prepare your home for storms

  • Completing a few simple tasks around your homecan significantly reduce the risk of damage to your home and car during a storm 
  • Secure loose items around your home like trampolines, garden furniture and toys that would need to be secured that could cause damage if blown around in high winds.
