Living in Biloela

Biloela's biggest attraction is the Silo, created for Brisbane’s Expo in 1988. More than 28 metres high, it is filled with an array of displays about Biloela’s primary industries. The Silo gives an insight into the region’s cotton production, stud and dairy cattle, redclaw and ostrich farming, grain production and land care.

Take the kids and checkout Mount Scoria. Meaning 'Place of Fused Metals', Mount Scoria is known as ‘Musical Mountain’. This amazing, rare rock formation, 150 metres high was once the core of a volcano. Long six-sided basalt columns on the top of the mountain project outwards like fingers. The columns sound musical notes when struck by another rock.

Biloela’s annual Comedy and Food Festival in October is a must-do event! Incorporating stand up comedy and cooking classes into a week long festival is a recipe for fun, disaster and laughs!
