About Dululu


Population: 126

The northern most town in the Banana region, Dululu is a junction point that divides the two southern arterials, Australia’s Country Way (Burnett Highway A3) to the east and the Leichhardt Way (A5) to the west.

Both highways reveal untold adventures and this rural village is the start of them all – a launching pad to the region and perfect place to stop, rest and make your touring plans.

The Dee River is at the doorstep – try the Dee at the Burnett Highway crossing for a close spot to throw a line – and the Don and Lake Victoria not far down the road.

At the rest area in Dululu a plaque bearing the names of early settlers is mounted on a hexagonal shaped rock similar to those found at Mount Scoria near Thangool.

Owners of vast areas of grazing land, these were folks who helped found the region’s cattle industry, including the Scot born Leith-Hays brothers who named the Dee and Don rivers.
