Biloela, oh Biloela…

Biloela is a thriving rural town (pop approx 7,000 people) on the Burnett Highway A3 in the Banana Shire, which is in the Callide Valley. The members the tribe of Gangulu were the first individuals to reside in this region, and they were also the ones who named the area. Biloela was the name of their totem, which was in the figure of a white cockatoo. We spend two days in this sweet lil’ town and learned about CS Energy Plant, Heritage Museum and Greycliff homestead. I also very much enjoyed time in the spectacular yard of my host family (Kev & Maree Bennett) who are growing Lemons, Limes, Oranges, Mandarins, Passion Fruit, Mango and etc. If I could I would transplanted their yard to my home in US 🙂 It was also very enjoyable to see Shane Britnell feeding his Roos! We tried to come close but they were too nervous.
