We have always provided good, old fashioned country hospitality. The motel offers 38 rooms. We have 22 modern deluxe rooms in addition to the original 16 standard rooms. Included in these is one self catering 2 bedroom apartment. We have a designated wheel chair friendly room that caters for the disabled patrons. Rooms are complete with tea and coffee making facilities, microwave oven plus toasters. All are air conditioned. Breakfast can be ordered to have in your room or in our dining area. Packed lunches can also be ordered.
Here at Moura Motel we know that travellers often have the need of larger parking spaces, so, to cater for this we have extra large bays that are suitable for trailers, caravans and small trucks.
Moura is known as 'The Coal and Cattle Centre of the Dawson', Moura is not a typical company town for miners. The region is mainly a rural area but has quite a mixture of ventures, such as the Queensland Cotton Gin located in town and the second largest wheat dump in Queensland; the huge silos can be seen from quite a distance. Just east of Moura is the Queensland Amonium Nitrate Plant and of course, the Moura Open-cut coal mine is nearby. The largest drag line in the world operates at this mine and it is gigantic. This is located south of Moura on the Theodore Road.

In recognition to all the hard work that went into creating what we feel is truly a new direction for Motels, ROOM Motels Kingaroy were honoured by wining the “Start up Business of the Year 2014” award at the regional business awards, hosted by South Burnett Regional Council and South Burnett Directions.
Moura is located in the Banana Shire on the Dawson Highway, 180 kilometres south-west of Gladstone or 586 kilometres north-west of Brisbane. This diverse township is located in the Dawson Valley.
Named the 'Heart of the Dawson Valley', this thriving community is known for its coal mining, cotton processing, wheat and sorghum growing and chemical manufacture. This mixture of activities has ensured that, unlike most coal mining centres in Queensland, the town has not developed as a typical company town for miners. The other major local enterprise is visually broadcast to the surrounding district. Huge grain silos (the second-largest in Queensland) are located at the eastern end of town and can be seen from a considerable distance.
Moura hosts a number of annual events including, the Coal and Country festival, Muddy Water Fishing Classic and the Dawson River Festival, which attracts visitors from all over Queensland.
The town also has a motel and hotel, a bakery, cafes, Memorial Club and Bowls Club. There's an IGA supermarket for groceries and a local service station to fill up at.
Don't forget their 18 hole golf course and Olympic size swimming pool....
