    The water isn't black in BlackWater

    Learn that the name Blackwater comes from the local water holes. The water in them seemed black, so the early settlers thought that Blackwater would be an appropriate name. And in 1845, coal deposits were found in the creek. 

    Even if nowadays Blackwater is very involved with coal mining, the city only began to develop properly in the 1960s, after investors came to the area. While the city may seem highly industrialised, you should know that there are many things you can do and see here in Blackwater after collecting your car rental. 

    Top Attractions in Blackwater

     Blackdown Tableland National Park is about 576 kilometers northwest of Brisbane. It is a 600-meter sandstone plateau which rise abruptly from the plains below. Compared to the surrounding plains, the plateau has a more temperate climate which supports the growth of open forests, ferns, heath, and a variety of plants and animals where a number of them are not found anywhere else! Rock arts of the Ghungalu people can also be found around the park.

    The Blackdown Tableland National Park is one of the most amazing things you will ever get to see. Even if it is not exactly in Blackwater, a trip to this extraordinary reservation is totally worth it. You will witness here an amazing variety of plant, bird and animal species, not to mention the incredible views. The best thing is that you can even spend the night in the camping facility, and enjoy a bonfire in the core of the nature.
    Bedford Weir is about 25 kilometers north of Blackwater. Bedford Weir is a man-made impoundment located on the Mackenzie River. The place is ideal for activities such as boating, skiing, and fishing (fishes such as Barramundi and Saratoga). And every September, a Saratoga fishing competition is held in the area.
    Bedford Weir is also an ideal picnic spot because wood fire barbecues and a children's playground are also available in the area.
    We had a lot of fun in Blackwater. Just a reminder, don't forget to bring cameras. The place is beautiful!
     “It's a lot better to travel with a companion”. This doesn't only apply to traveling to other places. This thought is very true regarding our lives. No man is an island. That's why we have friends and acquaintances.
    The Blackwater Coal Mine is definitely at the top of the list to visit since it reflects perfectly the city's personality, and it offers you an interesting insight on the industry. Move your car hire to the mine that produces more than 6 million tonnes of coal each year, which are then exported.

    The Lions Park is located on the Capricorn Highway and it is easy to recognise, because it has the flags of the 37 nations which are working in the coal industry. If you want you and your family to make a stop along the way and to enjoy a nice picnic, the Lions Park is definitely the perfect place to park your car hire.

    The Japanese Garden was founded to honor the sisterhood that Blackwater has with Fujisawa, and it opened on August 1, 1998. Explore the gardens which are astonishing, providing not only a great recreational opportunity, but also entertainment possibilities.
