Biloela & The Banana Shire
“Biloela”   (an   Aboriginal   word   meaning   White   Cockatoo)   is   the   largest   town   in   the   Banana   Shire, which    is    located    596km    north    of    Brisbane,    120km    west    of    Gladstone,    145km    south-west    of Rockhampton and 173 metres above sea-level. Biloela’s   economy   is   driven   by   pastoral   and   agricultural   enterprises   and   by   the   local   coal   mines   and power station, although, mercifully, the town could never be described as a mining town. Specifically,   local   income   is   generated   by   annual   livestock   slaughtering,   cotton   production,   dairy, wheat, sorghum, lucerne and other grains and cereals. Due   to   its   location   at   the   intersection   of   the   Dawson   and   Burnett   Highways,   the   town   is   the   hub   of   the Banana Shire and is well supplied with accommodation, shops, retail outlets, catering facilities, etc.
