Leave the coastal delights behind and venture into a world built on the sweat and fortitude of proud Aussie’s. Where the wide, brown land provides honest and true bush experiences that will be remembered forever.
The Banana Shire area abounds with opportunities for the intrepid traveller to experience a genuine bush holiday. Located west of Gladstone, this rural jewel abundant in earthy wonders and scenic country drives is an interesting feature on any travel itinerary.
The epicentre of the area is Biloela, a bustling township found in the heart of the Callide Valley and is an ideal spot from which to base your Australian bush adventure.
Whilst in the area, be sure to discover genuine bush experiences at Myella Farm Stay. This 2,600 acre working cattle property offers a true slice of Aussie bush life. Feel the sun on your back, wipe the sweat from your brow as you fix fences and collect firewood. Ride through wide-open fields on horses or discover the beauty of the bush from the back of your motorbike. Stroke an orphaned kangaroo as it snuggles into your chest. In the evening share a good old-fashioned home cooked meal and be entertained by authentic bush poetry or a good yarn.
This is the district of the Banana Shire - authentic, fair dinkum and full of pride
