About Blackwater

Blackwater and the Central Highlands offer many natural attractions.  Enjoy bush walking in the parks or forests, fishing or waterskiing at a local dam or gaze at the vast star filled night sky...

Take advantage of one of the mine tours offered at the Blackwater International Coal Centre where you’ll see the operation of a working open cut mine.  Learn more about the locally treasured ‘black gold’ and the rich history of the region by visiting the interactive displays. Or take a wander around the adjoining peaceful Japanese Garden.  It is well worth a visit.

From sandstone escarpments, sapphire fossicking fields to glistening fresh water springs, the Central Highlands is the perfect place to kick off an adventure...


We look forward to welcoming you to Blackwater
