Yuleba - Culture and History

Yuleba
Tiny rural service town.
A tiny township on the Warrego Highway 419 km west of Brisbane and 60 km east of Roma, Yuleba is the administrative centre for the Bendemere Shire. It was an important centre for some years prior to 1910 when it was a railway terminus for the area to the west. When the line was extended to Roma and beyond Yuleba declined in importance so that now it is no more than a town of about 300 people on the road from Miles to Roma.

Wallangarra - Fast Facts

Wallangarra
Tiny township on the New South Wales-Queensland border.
There is nothing particularly impressive about Wallangarra on the New South Wales-Queensland border. If the two states had behaved like reasonable governments then the town would probably never have come into existence. However the decisions by the two governments to build railways of different gauges (1067 mm for Queensland and 1435 mm for New South Wales) ensured that this tiny settlement became a major railway junction. From the completion of the railway in 1887 until common sense prevailed in 1930 every passenger travelling either north or south had to alight at Wallangarra and board another train. Not surprisingly the town's most distinctive feature, and its only real attraction, is the rather grand Victorian railway station. Such is the stupidity of politicians.
