Stopping at the Cooladdi Foxtrap is an experience on its own. It is an all-in-one store, motel, pub and post office. This town may be one of
Queensland’s smallest towns but it still has a lot to offer.
Once a thriving railway town, the railway station was originally called Yarronvale but was later renamed to Cooladdi (Aboriginal name meaning ‘Black Duck’) in 1913 to stop the confusion between a nearby patrol station with the same name.
Explore the remnants of what once was. The town had a population of 270 and housed a police station, butcher, school, post office and boarding house. The Cooladdi railway siding that remains today is one of the most photographed buildings around the Cooladdi region.
Take a stroll along Quilberry Creek (Aboriginal name meaning ‘Plenty of Water’) and enjoy the serenity of what nature has on offer, or throw in a line and try your luck at catching a fish or maybe even a yabby.
These small outback towns really do have so much personality so put Cooladdi on your list of things to see and do in the Murweh Shire.
