Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Queensland Heritage Park is also the information centre for Biloela and has a short stay area at the back for vans etc. We enjoyed walking through the museum and the heritage buildings and looking at all the machinery on the grounds.

    We stayed for 1 night. The lady at reception was lovely and although we didn't eat there, the cafe looks very good. $20.00 a night for two people and a powered site, includes access to the museum and heritage buildings which is exceptional value. Amenities are clean and are combined toilet/shower rooms. Camping area is large and flat and good sized sites.

    The place is closed and is just a cattle station now, but the family is still very open and sweet. I hope they will open the park again one day..

    The Callide Dam is located approx 12km east from Biloela off the Dawson Highway. We couldn’t get onto or close to the Dam wall itself but you can see it (and the distant Callide Power Station) from the wonderful picturesque picnic grounds and park beside Callide Lake (reservoir) where you can also fish and boat on. There is also a retreat by the lake with cabins and caravan sites. Wouldn't mind revisiting for a second look.

    This shop is filled with heart and soul! So many beautifully handcrafted goods from children's clothing, to soap and body products, jewelry, embroidered goods, candles, fudges, bakes, jams and pickles. Amazing timber work, photo frames and toys. The book nook is filled with new and secondhand books - perfect for the traveler. There are even vinyl records amongst the treasures! This shop has such a relaxing vibe and is a must-see! Little Market Co has all the treasures you would expect to find at a quality market!

    Lots of pamphlets/brochures on display to help you plan your stay and next trips. There were also a variety of souvenirs on display for purchase. You are also able to get lunch there if needed and there are picnic tables out the front to enjoy it.

    Now that the new information centre is open the gallery seems to be more convenient, Just a walk up the road while the van is parked. Well worth looking and always changing!

    What initially attracted me to this park is the huge directors chair which is a memorial to Bille Brown. William Gerald Brown AM (11 January 1952 – 13 January 2013) professionally known as Billie Brown was an Australian stage, film and television actor and acclaimed playwright. Brown was born in Biloela and studied drama at the University of Queensland. He began his career in the early 1970s at Queensland Theatre Company, working alongside Geoffrey Rush.

    This chair was placed here in 2003 whilst Billie was still alive. He never forgot his childhood town where he grew up. He said of the chair, "it should not be just a monument to me but an encouragement to others to pursue what they are good at and love doing".

    But beyond the chair is also an incredible park that has undercover sheltered areas, a thoughtful playground, huge grassy areas and it's clearly been thought through to make it appealing to all ages and abilities.

    Spent an hour at the dam. The park has BBQs with electric plates and undercover tables. Take some insecticide for the mozzies. It is a pretty place and good for Biloela residents and visitors.

    I stayed at the nearby Rainforest Motel ... instead of turning right out of their driveway I turned left and (left) into the street right next to the motel taking me up a hill. It's a residential street so god knows what I was expecting to find there... but it was a surprise.

    At the top of the hill, the road runs out ... like a court, and there is parking there. Once you park you simply must get out and walk through this park.

    There is a sign describing it as 'the generation point of existence, it is a living place made up of sky, clouds, rivers, trees, the wind, the sand and the spirit there- my own country. It is something and yet it is not a thing, it is a living entity, it belongs to me, I belong to the land, I rest in it. I come from here"- Pav Dodson

    The park has been dedicated to Tom Dawson , a citizen of Biloela from 1939-1990. It was officially opened by his wife in 1996.

    I got out and walked through it and it was truly stunning... you have views of the town and out past the edge of town... I was there at sunset which made it all the more beautiful. Children were running about laughing and playing which added to it's ambience. It's a really pretty place.

    Whilst this park is centrally located in town, you may never be aware of it if you are passing through... because it is a block or so back from the main road running through town. The  Park is  located on Melton Street. Melton Park is situated nearby to Biloela Library, and close to Super IGA.It's recently been refurbished from all appearances and it's been beautifully done. 

    Whilst the photos I took in the early evening appear like no-one is there, let me assure you there were about 14 people in the park that evening. It was the last place I visited at the end of my day in Biloela on a recent road trip before going hunting for food. :) The unusual feature would be the CCTV cameras, but I guess that makes the locals feel safer. 

    It's a lovely park, there is a huge grassy expanse to one side for ball games, a brilliant playground, toilets and information boards... well worth spending time here.

    The design of the Cenotaph is to represent a ship's cutter that landed the Anzac Troops at Gallipoli. If you were to view it from above, it represents a stirrup iron of a Light Horse saddle. The shrubs planted here represent the gunwales of a boat. The six stainless steel flag poles represent the oars of a boat which were hoisted vertically so the troops could disembark. 

    You get the idea...there has been a lot of thought put into this very thoughtful and thought-provoking war memorial. It is located across from the RSL and there is plenty of parking available. The area is exceptionally well manicured. There are plenty of seats for those who need to sit through an Anzac memorial...which is thoughtful.

    Located 20kms north-east of Biloela is the Callide Lookout which has about 12 steps up to an elevated caged platform. The views were vast, as far as the eye could see of the landscape and the nearby Callide Lake and Callide Dam Power Station.
