Dalby is a thriving town in the black soil plains of the Northern Darling Downs. Dalby is a hive of rural enterprise but it's not all work in this picturesque town. Every March, townsfolk celebrate Dalby Cotton Week, a festival run over 10 days.
Thomas Jack Park situated on the edge of the town centre is a good place to stop and stretch your legs. There is plenty of local history and culture on display at Pioneer Park Museum, with its wide range of exhibits. Follow the Heritage Trail, which takes you past historic, late nineteenth Century buildings.
Dalby is a great place to base yourself before exploring the Bunya Mountains National Park and historic Jimbour House, a short drive north-east. South-west of Dalby lies Lake Broadwater Conservation Park, a popular spot for bushwalking and birdwatching.
Dalby has all essential services. Major industries include rural, wheat, sorghum, cotton, sheep, pigs and cattle. Dalby also has an agricultural college.
