Description

Baralaba is a definitive Aussie town full of character. Found 96 kilometres north west of Biloela; it is a coal mining, cattle, grain and irrigated crop farming hub.

The township was developed after seams of coal were discovered in 1901. Even though the underground mine closed in 1969 the site and remains of the old Dawson Valley Colliery are now heritage listed. Open cut coal exploration recommenced in 2004 and is still being mined today.

The Neville Hewitt Weir on the Dawson River is a popular recreational area and offers the picnic areas and the best boating, skiing and fishing in the Dawson and Callide Valleys. Free camping is permitted.

Venture into the thriving bush of yesteryear with a trip to the Historical Village. Alternatively, tourists can immerse themselves in the Baralaba Historic Photos Collection at the Baralaba Landcare and Community Resource Development Centre. The 1,000 historic photos will give visitors a real appreciation of what life was like.

Baralaba plays hosts to a number of iconic events each year including the Baralaba Show, Silver Cup Campdraft, Dawson River Festival, Great Baralaba Saratoga Fishing Classic and an annual Christmas Carnival.
