    3 more images

    The Callide Power Station provides power to the national electricity market from the heart of central Queensland. It is a coal-fired power station about18 kilometres east of Biloela and has a total site capacity of 1,720 megawatts.

    There are about 200 people employed here so it is very important to the local community.

    Tours can be arranged by request but you can drive around the site to see many aspects of the power station and dam.

    Power Pole Info
    1 more image

    An interesting sculpture that is near the water tower murals.

    I wasn't sure what to make of it but when you read the inscription about peace and harmony it all comes together.

    I think the most interesting thing about this was that a small country town has incleded such a work in their park.

    " PowerPoles are totally unique and lovingly handcrafted sculptures that carry universal energy from the ancient healing symbols carved into them and from the process of how they are created. They are designed to help you achieve balance, harmony, peace and the flow of positive energy in your life".

    Anzac Memorial Park

    If the kids are with you or you are a military buff you might want to look at the Park.

    It's a pleasant place, not too big, ideal for a picnic or a break on the drive - and the guns on dislay are something to see which is a bit different to other parks.

    Visit a Coal Mine

    Callide Coal Mine

    There are two major mines very close to Biloela and visits can be arranged.

    These mines can be seen from several vantage points if you do not want to actually visit the mine and see the workings.

    Many people are against the open cut mines as they are destroying the area and you can see how destruction of mountains and valleys is happpening in this area. But, there is also a lot of regeration going on and hopefully this will see pleaseant views again in the future.

    Spirit of the Land mural

    Spirit of Land Mural
    2 more images

    The mural is painted on a huge watertank and gives a great insight into the development of this town and region.

    The mural tells stories of European settlement and Aboriginal settlement. There are signs surrounding the mural which signs tell stories of real people who left their country of birth, compromised, pioneered and adapted to the Australian way of life.

    The indigenous section shows aboriginal life before European settlement.

    Definitely worth a visit.
