Emerald Volunteer Area Committee

A thriving rural town, 250 km west of Rockhampton, Emerald is nearly in the middle of the Central Highlands Regional Council’s area.   The town of Emerald is on the Capricorn Highway and the Central Railway (1879) from Rockhampton. The town began with an agriculturally dominated economy, but since the 1970s this has been overtaken by the fossil energy economy, especially coal. Incomes have been correspondingly high, and families with children have made for relatively youthful populations. The Emerald township had a population of 14,000 in 2020.
