About Alpha

Alpha is a small town located in the Barcaldine Region in Central West Queensland, Australia. What makes this settlement an important and strategic place is that it is located on one of the richest coal mines of the country. For this reason, Alpha is referred to as “Coal Town”. Alpha is surrounded by four mineral deposits. Especially Galilee Basin contains high quality coal. Many projects are being developed in order to process and carry the coals found in the region. Local people and environmentalists reject these projects. Project owners defend that the coal in the region has low ash and sulfur waste and such quality coal is essential for power plants.

Alpha is a town which significantly dressed its wounds, which occurred because of a natural disaster it faced in 1990, by taking shelter behind art. Flood disaster occurring following the unusual rainfall gave great damages to Alpha. After this disaster, Alpha Murals were created by two local artists. The murals were improved by many artists day by day. Landscape of the town mainly consists of these murals. Thanks to its pastoral features, Alpha is a place where travelers interested in nature tourism can explore interesting points. Alpha Fossil Forests, golf courses, Jane Neville-Rolfe Art Gallery, Tivoli Theater Museum and of course the Alpha Murals are important tourist attractions of the town. The effects of steppe climate are seen in the town. Alpha Airport is located 4.5 kilometers west of the town.
