About this postcard
Blackall is a small town and rural locality in the Blackall-Tambo Region in Central West Queensland, Australia. At the 2016 census Blackall had a population of 1,416. It is the service centre for the Blackall-Tambo Region. The dominant industry in the area is grazing. Blackall claims to be the home of the original Black Stump, which marks the original Astro Station established in 1887. Places west of this point are said to be 'beyond the black stump'. The Black Stump was moved from its original location to make it more accessible to tourists, and can now be found on the boundary of the Blackall State School grounds, Thistle Street, Blackall. Blackall has many attractions for public use and entertainment, including the Blackall showground, the local pool and the historic Blackall Woolscour.
