A relatively new mining town of the Isaac Region in Queensland, Moranbah is a destination where you can enjoy a more relaxed holiday and has some key attractions worth taking in too.
The town centre or town square is a great place to start your adventures in Moranbah; service apartments and hotels can be found walking distance away as well. Popular attractions here include a water sculpture, play area for kids and the Grosvenor Complex home to the Coalface Art Gallery featuring works by local artists.
Those heading to Grosvenor Park (or the Town Square Park), will find lush areas to unwind and have picnics or BBQs too. Easy to reach on foot from properties such as Oaks Moranbah Suites, the park is home to the Musical Railway and Musical Table and Chairs which are objects that can be played like instruments!
First-time visitors in search of things to do in Moranbah can enjoy a pleasant stroll along a one-kilometre trail that is known as the Federation Walk. The highlight of this walk would undoubtedly be at the end when you get the chance to see the huge Big Red Rhino Bucket, symbolic of the area’s coal mines.
Amongst the attractions in Moranbah are some notable artworks which are on display to the public including at the Town Square Park. Here you will find the Bridled-Nailtail Wallaby Sculpture made from sandstone and the Australia Remembers Mural, dedicated to those who served during World War Two.
