The Black Stump - Blackall


The Australian expression 'black stump' is the name for an imaginary point beyond which the country is considered remote or uncivilised, an abstract marker of the limits of established settlement. The origin of the expression, especially in its evolved use as an imaginary marker in the landscape, is contested. The various claims are discussed below.

RvTrips' review

25 Mar 2018

The Black Stump in Blackall was used to conduct survey readings in Queensland - apparently stumps were used to hold the heavy theodolites steady while the readings were taken  

This historic site is located near Blackall School and is just off the Landsborough Highway that runs through town - a petrified stump replaces the original Black Stump which was destroyed by fire. We wanted to visit this site so we could say that we have been "beyond the Black Stump" as well as "this side of the Black Stump" - a bit of fun.
