Meandarra

Locality

Meandarra is the hub of a prime production area of grain, cattle, and sheep and is also a popular fishing and camping spot. Meandarra is considered the cultural centre of the Tara area, with the historic School of Arts Hall in town as well as many local artists. Be sure to take home a local hand-crafted piece.

This community has the largest storage facilities for Queensland-grown wheat, with harvesting from mid-October to mid-November. Brigalow Creek is well known for its water-lilies and fishing for golden perch and jewfish. Camping is permitted in the creek.

Meandarra is home to an extensive display of military equipment. The fascinating display is on a modern broad acre, dry land farming and grazing property with cereal crop production and beef cattle. Also on-site, a native wildlife preservation programme offers excellent opportunities to observe and photograph a diverse range of flora and fauna.

Stop off at the Leo Gardon Apex Park where free electric barbecues and picnic facilities offer pleasant surrounds.
