Kaimkillenbun

The little town of Kaimkillenbun, has the longest single place name in Queensland and is known to the locals simply as 'The Bun'. Kaimkillenbun's closest major town is Dalby (24 kilometres to the south west) and it is a great place to stop in when driving to the Bunya Mountains. This enthusiastic township has won the community action award in the Tidy Towns Competition and is a regular finalist and category winner.

Kaimkillenbun was the setting for the movie 'Chase Through the Night' which starred Nicole Kidman and it is also the birthplace of Olympic basketballer John Dorge. Accommodation and country meals are available at the historic 'Bun Pub', and there is also a caravan park for your accommodation needs. The locals will be more than happy to share a yarn with you and help you discover the history of the town.

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.
