This was Australia's first commercial oil field, established in 1961, it still operates today pumping Crude Oil at a rate of 35 kilolitres (7777 gallons) every 24 hours. Now the area is now also noted for its quality grain, cattle and prime lamb production. The Moonie Transaction Centre can assist with all your information needs, and offers a wide range of local arts and crafts. The Moonie Crossroads is a must see, with the history of Moonie depicted in the brilliant murals in the bar area.
