Started as a village in the 1920s, Biloela has now developed into a busy commercial hub with an ever-growing multicultural community. Generations of local men and women have left a long-lasting impact on the town. This insightful past is celebrated through a range of exhibits at the Queensland Heritage Park (11 Exhibition Avenue). You'll definitely learn a thing or two about the early pioneers and their agricultural machinery.



Also paying homage to the town's legacy is the extraordinary Spirit of the Land Mural. Located on State Farm Road, this large-scale artwork has transformed the local water reservoir. It brings together various stories from the beginning to now. Do take the time to unfold the stories by reading the plaques onsite.



Among the many homesteads around town, Greycliffe Homestead has been heritage-listed by the National Trust of Queensland. It was built in the 1870s and renovated in the 1920s. Its verandah and interior have not changed much since. You're welcome to visit the homestead by appointment. The best contact number is 4992 3959.



Exhibitions are frequently staged at the Banana Shire Regional Art Gallery (62 Valentine Plains Road). This includes touring shows and local works as well as pieces from the council collection which comprises of works by well-known artist Ruby Campbell. Open on weekdays, the gallery is free for all to enjoy.



Lastly, Biloela has also joined the silo art trail. Australian Mungbean Company wanted new signage and therefore commissioned Drapl and The Zookeeper to paint the silos at their plant. The artwork depicts a mungbean grower checking his crop, in honour of the local industry and region.
