Dalby

Built on the black soil plains of the northern Darling Downs, Dalby is the regional hub of the Western Downs and a hive of rural enterprise.

Celebrate with the local community at the Dalby Delicious and DeLIGHTful Festival held in August every year and enjoy international cuisine, a spectacular lantern parade and talented entertainers.

Thomas Jack Park is the perfect place to stop for a wander through the beautifully landscaped gardens, relax by the lily pond and listen to the tranquil sounds of the waterfall.

Experience the local history and culture of the district on display at Pioneer Park Museum, with the largest collection of working early model trucks, tractors and agricultural equipment. Follow the Dalby Heritage Trail and visit some of Dalby's stunning historical buildings, homes and churches.

Dalby is a great place to base yourself before exploring the Bunya Mountains National Park and the historic Jimbour House, a short drive to the north-east of town. To the south-west of Dalby is the Lake Broadwater Conservation Park, a popular spot for camping, bushwalking and birdwatching.

Dalby has all the essential services. Major industries are cotton, wheat, sorghum, sunflowers and cattle.

Dalby: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Dalby War Memorial and Gates


Dalby's grand tribute to its local WWI soldiers represents a joint venture of local and international talent.

Governor Sir Matthew Nathan unveiled the Dalby War Memorial on 26 July 1922. The memorial and wrought iron gates flanked by carved sandstone pillars were designed by local monumental mason, J Shill. British sculptors John Whitehead and Sons modelled the Dalby soldier statue, based on a sergeant-major of the Grenadier Guards. The statue was cast at a London foundry.

Only two known examples of Whitehead's work exist in Queensland. Dalby's digger is one of only two bronze diggers in the state. The memorial, set in a park, honours 360 local men who served in WWI. Of them, 64 died. Bronze plates, created by Norwegian immigrant Ernest Gunderson, bear the soldiers' names.

Sandstone gate pillars bear the AIF badge and the dates 1914 and 1919. Torch shaped light are installed atop the pillars.
