Moura is located in the Banana Shire on the Dawson Highway, 180 kilometres south-west of Gladstone or 586 kilometres north-west of Brisbane. This diverse township is located in the Dawson Valley.
Named the 'Heart of the Dawson Valley', this thriving community is known for its coal mining, cotton processing, wheat and sorghum growing and chemical manufacture. This mixture of activities has ensured that, unlike most coal mining centres in Queensland, the town has not developed as a typical company town for miners. The other major local enterprise is visually broadcast to the surrounding district. Huge grain silos (the second-largest in Queensland) are located at the eastern end of town and can be seen from a considerable distance.
Moura hosts a number of annual events including, the Coal and Country festival, Muddy Water Fishing Classic and the Dawson River Festival, which attracts visitors from all over Queensland.
The town also has a motel and hotel, a bakery, cafes, Memorial Club and Bowls Club. There's an IGA supermarket for groceries and a local service station to fill up at.
Don't forget their 18 hole golf course and Olympic size swimming pool.
