Cheap Flights to Emerald, Australia from New Zealand

 

 

Emerald, a town located in the Central Highlands of Central Queensland, Australia, got its name from “Emerald Downs Hill”, a lush emerald green hill located north of the town. Emerald is considered the hub and business center for Central Highlands and the gateway to the Sapphire Gemfields which is one of the richest, sapphire fields located in the southern hemisphere. Emerald grew and developed after the construction of the Fairbairn Dam which enhanced and expanded the agriculture across the region.

A famous tourist attraction in Emerald is The Gemfields which is one of the largest mining fields, not for emeralds but for sapphire. The Gemfields is the largest sapphire field in the southern hemisphere. Another famous tourist attraction is the Fairbairn Dam which was built to hold back the waters of Lake Maraboon. Lake Maraboon itself is a tourist attraction in Emerald, which has many water sports, picnics tables and areas for recreation for visitors. Emerald is also famous for being the home of the world’s biggest Van Gogh sunflower painting on an easel. The painting is located in Morton Park which represents the once famous reputation of Emerald for being a major sunflower producer. Other places of interest in Emerald include the restored National Trust listed Railway Station and an ancient fossilized tree aged 250 million years preserved at the Emerald Town Hall.
