Dalby Queensland

27°11′S 151°16′E

A beautiful country town with every facility you can wish for….all the shops, a pretty park in the centre of the town adjacent to the Information Centre,  petrol stations, wide treed roads, hotels, even a centrelink for the traveling  nomads, and Lake Broadwater 30 kms south on the Moonie Road for recreation.

Industry in Dalby includes large-scale engineering, coal mining, and fuels (ethanol). Dalby is the centre of a diverse and productive agricultural area with rich black soil allowing the production of crops such as wheat, cotton and sorghum. Livestock raising including pigs, cattle and sheep is also popular. Two cotton gins are situated within 10 kilometres (6 mi) of the town.

Dalby is to be the site of the first dry mill grain-to-ethanol plant constructed in Australia (the first plant built specifically for the production of ethanol for fuel since the Second World War)

Lake Broadwaterhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dalby,_Queensland

Dalby /ˈdɒlbi/[2] is a town in the Darling Downs region of Queensland, Australia, and is located approximately 210 kilometres (130 mi) west of the state capital, Brisbane, at the junction of the Warrego, Moonie and Bunya Highways.[3] Dalby is the administrative centre of the Western Downs Region and the centre of Australia’s richest grain and cotton growing area.[3] At the 2006 census, Dalby had a population of 9,778.[1]

The name of the town is believed to come from the village of Dalby on the Isle of Man and reflects immigration from the Isle of Man in the mid nineteenth century.[4] The name was apparently chosen by Captain Samuel Perry when he surveyed the settlement in 1853

Dalby’s Water Treatment Plant uses a state-of-the-art reverse osmosis process, and will soon have a second RO plant to cater for the town’s increasing needs. The town has made a ground-breaking deal with nearby gas companies by taking water from gas fields. It has been noted that the town will have a definite water supply for at least another 30 years, taking into account demographic trends

Dalby has a monument to the Cactoblastis cactorum in a park by the Myall Creek which runs through the town. The Argentinian caterpillar successfully eradicated the prickly pear in the 1920s
