Situated about 2 hours inland from Gladstone is the idyllic town of Biloela. Located within the picturesque Callide Valley otherwise known as the Banana Shire. It’s less than an hour’s flight from Brisbane so if you’re catching a plane in and looking for a few things to do while in the region, pick up a car from Budget Car Hire at Biloela Airport and cruise around to any of the following places.
Biloela / Thangool Airport
Thangool, QLD 4716
Lake Callide is only a ten minute drive from the Biloela township, and if you’re a keen angler then you may be excited to find out that the lake is part of the ‘Bass to Barra’ trail, a freshwater sports fishing adventure which occurs throughout Australia. If carting around a rod and reel is not your forte then the lake is also great for camping, swimming or water skiing.
If Australian history is something that interests you then a visit to Biloela’s Queensland Heritage Park is a must do. With a range of heritage displays, photographs and family heirlooms paying tribute to Central Queensland’s farming and pioneering heritage you will definitely learn a thing or two by spending a few hours here. With a cafe and other amenities, the park is a great way to pass your time in Biloela.
Budget Car Hire operates out of Biloela Airport and hiring a car when you land is the best way to see the region. Instead of the stress of trying to organise a rental car after you land, book through Skedaddle for a great deal and a straightforward booking. Biloela Airport is located in Thangool, about a ten minute drive out of Biloela along the Burnett Highway.
