Welcome to Biloela, in central Queensland, Australia. 
Biloela is an aboriginal word meaning "white cockatoo". 
A white cockatoo is a noisy white parrot with a yellow crest, which sounds a little like a crow, except the call is more a shriek than a complaint. 
Biloela is a town of approximately 6,000, with open cut coal mines, an abattoir, power stations, & grain crops. 
Thangool airport is close by. Rockhampton
(145km away- about an hour & 45 minutes' drive) & Gladstone (121km away - about an hour & a half's drive) are our nearest cities - so Yeppoon (1/2 hour's drive from Rockhampton) & Tannum Sands (near Gladstone) are our nearest beaches.
