Dayboro QLD


Postcode: 4521

Dayboro is a village in the Pine Rivers Shire in Queensland, Australia, approximately 36km (22mi) north-northwest of Brisbane City.

To the north of Dayboro lies the D’Aguilar Range and the mountain township of Mount Mee. Other nearby towns include Petrie and Samford. The land surrounding the town supports avocado and pineapple plantations, as well as dairy cattle. The scenic countryside is a spectacular destination for motoring enthusiasts, with hilly backroads through rolling paddocks and forestry.

There are several routes worth travelling, including Lees Crossing Road, which runs off the end of Laidlaw Street on the southern outskirt of the town. This route takes you along some narrow, winding (mostly bitumen) roads to reconnect with Mount Samson Road at Kobble Creek. A good route to take if you enjoy Grand Touring. If you have a 4X4 and a relevant permit, the Mt Mee State Forestry is also worth a look, with entrances from the foothills at the end of Mt Pleasant Road, or from Mt Mee Road.

While you are in Dayboro, it’s worth stopping at one of the roadside stalls for some local produce, including strawberries, pineapples and watermelons to name a few. The Dayboro Rodeo and Dayboro Show usually occur between May and July every year, as well as ‘Dayboro Day’, celebrating the towns unique rural heritage so close to the Brisbane CBD.
