The Central Highlands is more than you expect—it’s home to some of Queensland’s most unique attractions. Carnarvon Gorge is one of the most visited national parks in Central Queensland; the soaring cliffs and natural beauty make it a major tourist attraction for the region. The Sapphire Gemfields are the largest of their kind in the Southern Hemisphere. The Blackwater International Coal Centre houses the Australian Coal Mining Museum, while Capella’s Pioneer Village and Springsure’s Old Rainworth Fort showcase the region’s European and indigenous heritage.
