Moonie - Fast Facts

Moonie
Tiny town on the edge of the Surat-Bowen oil and gas basin.
To call Moonie a township is to give it a quality which would probably surprise most of the residents. Located on the junction of the Moonie and Leichhardt Highways some 323 km west of Brisbane and close to the Weir and Moonie Rivers (noted for their quality fishing) it is really nothing more than a service station, a few houses and a motel.

It is possible to inspect the oil fields (they are not immediately obvious from the Leichhardt Highway) and tours can be arranged from the motel.
