Anakie is positioned at the Sapphire Gemfields ‘crossroads’ along the Capricorn Highway, and hosts Australia’s largest sapphire exhibition, Gemfest – Festival of Gems over four days each August. Visit the historic Anakie Hotel which had to be partially rebuilt in 1971 after a disgruntled patron blew out the front section with gelignite and enjoy the community rejuvenated town dam area.
Don’t miss having your photo taken with the Big Sapphire.
Anakie has your accommodation covered with a bed and breakfast, caravan park and hotel/motel. The nearest hospital is located at Emerald, and there is a service station, along with a local pub for meals and drinks.
