Living in Moura

Moura is a social town. The close knit community ensures that you will always have a partner in crime for the many social events the town hosts.

Mark it on your calendar – Moura’s Coal and Country Festival is on annually in August. This week long festival consists of spectacular fireworks displays, wheelbarrow races, street parade, the Queensland Coal Shovelling Championships, a rodeo, wood chopping, live bands as well as side show alley. This event is must-see Moura magic! The festival kicks off with a ball on Saturday night and finishes with the rodeo on the following Saturday. Proving how big a role mining plays to Moura, traditionally the mine owners (currently Anglo Coal) finance the event each year as a gesture of their commitment to the community.

Moura is also host to the unique night waterskiing competition in April. Sponsored by Water Ski Queensland, H2Opia and Ski Surf Snow, this event consists of LED glow-in-the-dark balls lighting the ski run down the Dawson River and crazy waterskiing enthusiasts strapping on their skis for a night of fun.

Local must see!

The bronze statue of a miner, located in the centre of town is a monument
to those 12 miners who lost their lives in the Moura underground Number 4 Disaster on 16 July 1986. Mining is an integral part of Moura – visit the statue and pay your respects.
