Built around the mid-1970s the Blackall saleyards was established as a structure to sell local cattle and has 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. Recent refurbishments and the construction of a superb viewing platform enables visitors to the region to experience first-hand the incredible sight and sounds of a cattle sale at which over 100 people attend.
Cattle sales are usually held weekly on a Thursday and visitors are welcome to attend and experience the action of a live sale from the purpose-built viewing deck.
