Referred to as the ‘new kid on the block’, Moranbah is one of the youngest towns in Queensland. Located in the heart of the Bowen Basin, which houses the largest coal mining deposits in Australia, Moranbah was specifically created for miners and their families. Though the town has grown and developed, many of the original mining families have remained within their ‘home town’ because of its rich charm and emanating warmth. Today Moranbah takes pleasure in an abundance of modern facilities. It is often described as the hub of the Isaac Region, offering many services you will find in the bigger towns. Moranbah is part of the Greater Whitsunday region. The Greater Whitsunday region is as diverse as it is wide, has a proven track record for growth and resilience, and is one of the true economic powerhouse regions in Queensland and Australia.
