Everyone says ‘G’day’ with a smile and a nod as you walk down the wide streets of Biloela. It’s friendly, warm and welcoming. Buildings wear the tell-tale signs of progress through the decades. Eclipsing other towns as a regional centre, Biloela had some help along the way.
Just a village in the early 1920s, the State Government set up a display farm close by, hoping the growing populous would develop the town. It did.
However, the post WWII years were the kindest of all, Biloela becoming home to an ever widening, multi-cultural community, servicing big business, government and industry bodies, cooperatives and small business as well as the rural and mining sectors that surround it.
Today, Biloela is a busy commercial and tourist hub, though it still retains that relaxed, country feeling.
Along with Queensland Heritage Park, a Regional Art Gallery, the Spirit of the Land Mural and the Heritage Listed Greycliffe Homestead, the town stages an impressive annual program of festivals and events.
Like a compass, all roads lead from Biloela, reaching into the countryside and out across the region, taking you to all the places you want to see. However, close to home, you’ll find fabulous things to see and do.
Much like the Dawson Valley, Banana Shire’s Callide Valley provides rich coal resources and vital power supplies to Queensland.
