Additional Notes Barcaldine is situated on the Central Western Railway line approximately 518 km west of Rockhampton. Barcaldine is well known in Australian history as the place of the 1891 shearers' strike and the foundation of the Australian Labor Party under the Tree of Knowledge. It is also home to the Australian Workers Heritage Centre and the old world Radio Theatre, complete with its canvas seats and the working windmill that pumps water into the sculpture designed and erected by the Youth of Barcaldine, which stands outside the information centre.
