Biloela is quite a sizeable town so we decide on a 2 night stop. We were here last in 2011 but only overnighted. Biloela is the aboriginal word that means cockatoo. Just outside the town is a large coal mine , dam and power station – the Callide.
Biloela boasts a very well presented local attraction – their water tower has been painted with all the local history of the region.
One aside- being a mining town, there are quite a few single male workers based in Biloela. We decide to try a local hostelry for a cold beer and quickly backtracked through the door when we realised that the bar staff were quite unique – young, female and VERY scantily clad.
