Moonie, the oil capital of Queensland is a tiny settlement on the intersection of the Leichhardt and Moonie Highways.

This was Australia’s first commercial oil field, established in 1961, it still operates today and lufkins can be seen working nearby. Now the area is noted for its quality grain, cattle and prime lamb production.

Legend says that Captain Starlight once passed through the area on one of his escapades.

The Sports Club serves as the hub of the district’s social activities providing a range of sporting facilities.
