Where are we?

Welcome to Moura, QUEENSLAND!

Moura is located just a couple of hours south west of Rockhampton and is a central point and vibrant community for the people who serve its local industries – the farmers, growers and miners and their families that help to make Queensland great.

Lying in the heart of the Dawson Valley, on the banks of the Dawson River, its parklands and public facilities, festivals and events, river fishing and water sports attract thousands of visitors each year.

The quality of life rings true in Moura – hard working people who know how to have fun at the end of the week make the most of their surroundings.
