There’s not a whole lot you can say about Alpha. The tiny township sits along the Capricorn Highway about 430km west of Rockhampton with a population of only a few hundred people. Central Queensland is synonymous with farming and mining and Alpha is no exception, being part of the largest cattle producing shire in the state. Known as “The Gateway to the West” the town was established during the construction of the Great Northern Railway and served workers building the line and today is an important stopover for any travellers heading to Longreach or beyond. If you find yourself in Alpha and are looking for a car rental then Budget Car Hire have got you covered.
