Crossroads is a locality in the Western Downs Region, Queensland, Australia.[2] In the 2016 census, Crossroads had a population of 130 people.[1]

Geography[edit]

The Condamine Kogan Road traverses the locality from south-east (Hopeland/Montrose) to south-west (Nangram/Wieambilla). The Chinchilla Tara Road traverses the locality from north (Greenswamp) to south (Wieambilla).[3] These two roads intersect in roughly the centre of the locality and presumably provide the name for the locality.[3]
