Surat, Queensland, Australia – Geography Series

This post is part of the Geography Series (8th post).

Surat is a small town in Queensland, Australia (Oceania) located on the Balonne river and more than 400 km west from Brisbane. It provides services for the surrounding rural settlements. Some oil extraction fields can also be found to the South. The Camarvon highway traverses the town that is an end for the Surat development road. Not very far there is also a small forest, named Calgoon State Forest. The Surat Golf Course field uses almost a third of the town surface! The town was named after the city of Surat in India by an early surveyor. A little more details can be found here.

Roma is the closest larger town. But "larger" is a big word. Roma has only about 7000 inhabitants. See this page for more details about Roma.
