Alpha was named after an early property in the area, which was taken up in 1863 and then became established as a service town for railway construction workers. Located in western Queensland 1046km from Brisbane via Roma and 1066km via Rockhampton, Alpha is known as The Gateway to the West’. The town is a small service centre in western Queensland serving the surrounding rural area, which is known as one of the richest cattle raising areas in the state.
