7-9 Dawson Highway Biloela, QLD 4715
The township has all the usual modern comforts with a shopping district, cafes, pubs, motels, parks and a public swimming pool. If you’re looking for something to do around town then check out the Spirit of the Land’ mural or take advantage of your car hire and take a trip out to Cracow, a tiny colonial gold mining village an hour and a half from Biloela.
A 15 minute drive southeast from Biloela will take you to the Mount Scoria Conservation Park. Sitting in the middle of fertile grazing land is this magnificent volcanic mountain which peaks at 150 metres. With striking basalt columns formed from cooled lava, dating back to over 20 million years when the volcano was once active the park makes for an excellent day trip for the keen bushwalker. The area is of cultural significance for the local Gangulu people so remember to leave only footprints and take only memories.
