Description

Biloela is the epicentre of the Banana Shire and is a growing rural town with a very diverse agricultural industry including cotton, sorghum, wheat, herbs and spices. The cattle industry is thriving with the largest number of cattle of any shire in Queensland.

Biloela's biggest attraction is The SILO. More than 28 metres high, it is filled, not with grain, but with an array of displays about primary industry. The SILO situated in Exhibition street gives an insight into cotton production, stud and dairy cattle, redclaw and ostrich farming, grain production and landcare.

Biloela came into being only in 1924 as an agricultural centre. Coal was first mined in the 1940s but was transported to Gladstone.

A short 12 kilometre drive from Biloela is Lake Callide - known mostly for its fishing, red-claw and bird life, camping is also available along the lake, which offers toilets, picnic facilities and a playground.

Visit nearby Kroombit Tops National Park with its array of 4WD trails, spectacular views, subtropical rainforest and palm-fringed waterfalls. It's also the final resting place of Beautiful Betsy, a World War II Liberator Bomber which disappeared in 1944 and was only discovered by chance in 1994!
