Blackall

布萊考(Blackall)位於瑪蒂爾達(Matilda Highway)公路上,地名取自於昆士蘭(Queensland)第二任總督 Samuel Blackall 爵士之名。 本鎮是由探險家 Thomas Mitchell 少校於 1846 年所創建。

在布萊考(Blackall)的水上活動中心(Aquatic Centre)休息、放鬆、恢復活力—這裡有自流井水療設施和游泳池。

本鎮基於許多原因而聲名遠播,1892 年,剪羊毛工人 Jack Howe 讓布萊考(Blackall)出現在地圖上「愛麗斯當斯(Alice Downs)」的位置,當時他用了七小時四十分鐘的時間剪了 321 頭綿羊的羊毛,創下世界紀錄。 直到 58 年後才有人追平這項紀錄,而且還是使用剪羊毛機。

此外,布萊考(Blackall)早在 1885 年即成為第一個開始鑽探自流井的內陸(Outback)城鎮。 這裡也是作為測量用途的黑木樁(Black Stump)所在地,這個永久性地標示出 1887 年所建的艾斯楚牧場(Astro Station)的原始位置。 此位置以西的範圍均屬於「偏遠荒涼地帶(beyond the black stump)」。
