Angellala Bridge Explosion Site - 26km South of Charleville on the Mitchell Highway
At 9.50pm on the 5th of September 2014, 26km south of Charleville, Australian transport history was made. A truck carrying 53 tonnes of ammonium nitrate caught fire, crashed and exploded at Angellala Creek. The blast radius was huge and felt over 30km away and had Charleville locals thinking it was an earthquake. Today, the road bridge has been rebuilt, but signs  of the explosion still remain and the story is told through a specially prepared interpretive area at the site.
