Westmar is a small town on the Moonie Highway. The Andersen brothers, owners of Western and Maranoa Transport companies, opened a fuel depot and rest stop at this location. The name Westmar was derived from the first part of the words WESTern and MARanoa.
The community’s roadhouse offers everything from fuel and groceries to an evening meal and a cool beer. The community holds gymkhanas, sports days and movie nights.
Southwood National Park lies further east along the Moonie Highway.
