Central Queensland Livestock Exchange – CQLX

Central Queensland Livestock Exchange (CQLX) formerly known as the “Gracemere Saleyards” commenced operations in January 1953. The saleyard is situated 8 kms west of Rockhampton, the Beef Capital, on the Capricorn Highway leading to the Central Highlands and the Central western centres of Barcaldine, Blackall, Longreach and Winton.

Whether you are visiting Rockhampton, the Beef Capital for business or pleasure, a trip to the CQLX should be on your to-do list.

CQLX ranks as one of the major selling centres in Australia and is regarded as one of the best stud selling facilities in the country. The facility has the capacity to sell 4,000 head of cattle at a time and has a stadium area for stud stock sales as well as a cafe and dedicated spelling yards.

The Stirling Rockhampton offers courtesy bus services to drop you to the Saleyards and will collect you again, because you will deserve a nice cold beer after the excitement of an action packed day at CQLX.
