To look at it on a map, Yuleba looks like a little town on the Warrego Highway about mid-way between Roma and Miles. Sure, it is a well-equipped little town offering many services for travellers, but it’s also a place with a rich and important history and more than a thing or two to entice you to stay awhile.
Yuleba features in the story of the Cobb & Co era, as it was between Surat and Yuleba that Cobb & Co scheduled its very last horse-drawn coach mail run on 16 August 1924. You can retrace that last run and visit sites of local significance such as the Cobb & Co Mural, Aboriginal native wells (also a pleasant picnic spot) and Cobb & Co Corduroys – where cypress pines were laid to make roads passable in the horse-drawn era.
Keen fossickers can hunt for opalised and petrified wood and agates at The Maryanne, and there’s plenty of room for bush camping beside the dam.
Yuleba’s scenic Judd’s Lagoon and Wetlands is abundant in flora and fauna, providing a tranquil natural backdrop for bush camping and the perfect spot to relax and connect with nature.
