We have collected some of the best local things to do in Biloela on your next trip through. Once described as the ‘Mouse that Roared’, so much of what Biloela has to offer is worthy of a much larger town. Biloela is one of the towns that makes up the Banana Shire and the magnificent Outback Queensland’s Eastern Sandstone Wonders Region.
This region is well known for its vast natural attractions, including National Parks, impressive rivers and picturesque gorges, and offers many opportunities for 4WD adventures, fishing and water sports. Biloela is the indigenous word for the noisy, sometimes destructive, but always beautiful white cockatoo. It is not unusual to see a flock of these birds in flight almost daily in the town.
Originally established as a farming and railway town in the early 1920’s, Biloela soon became the commercial hub of the Banana Shire for early settlers. Originally, graziers settled in the region and then later settlers of farming grain, cotton, dairying and piggeries soon followed.
Biloela is a warm and welcoming, bustling town with many attractive features, like the Biloela Civic Centre, Spirit of the Land Mural, the Greycliffe Homestead, Callide Dam and the Banana Shire Regional Art Gallery, located in the new Shire Administration Centre, which supports local and visiting artists with new exhibitions being displayed regularly.
From outdoor adventures, road trips like the Sandstone Wonders Historical Trail, camping, fishing and boating fun, there are so many things to see and do whilst visiting this special part of Outback Queensland.
Although it is a smaller town, it is an ambitious place – planning to grow the community, with ample space to do just that. Hectares of land zoned for future urban, developed and green field industrial land is waiting eagerly for new industry. That’s just a small sample of some of the best things to do in Biloela on your next outback trip – make sure you stop by!
