Built around the mid-1970s 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 deck constructed in 2017.
