The Blackall Woolscour is a highlight of travelling in western Queensland. The buildings were conserved in 2002, but most importantly previous owners and the current trust that runs the place have kept all of the steam engines working. Seeing the scour machinery working, which is part of the tour of the place, is truly a fascinating experience. This is the last working steam driven factory left in the southern hemisphere. The history of the place, and its economic importance to the Blackall area in its time really highlight the importance of the wool industry to Queensland and indeed Australia. A highly recommended tour that makes staying overnight in Blackall worthwhile.
