What to do in 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, talented entertainers and much, much more!
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. For a list of what is coming up at the park click here. 
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. For a list of what is coming up at the museum click here. 

Follow the Dalby Heritage Trail and visit some of Dalby's stunning historical buildings, homes and churches, including St Josephs Catholic Church, St John's Anglican Church, Country Club Hotel and the Old Police station to name but a few. 

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.
