BELL

Bell is a small town 40kms north of Dalby when traveling to Kingaroy. Bell is clearly a community minded township with heritage playing a part on preserving the future.

Bell is picturesque a village nestled in the western foothills of the Bunya Mountains.

Originally the area around Bell was part of a large land holding called Jimbour Station. In the 1870s the area was opened up for closer settlement and Angus & Christina McPhee from Scotland became the first settlers nearest to what would become the village of Bell. Over

The Railway Heritage Parkland, built on the site of the original railway terminus, features an early model diesel locomotive and a vintage passenger carriage as well as a historical mural painted on the shed wall.

A visit to the Roman Catholic Church will be rewarded by seeing a mural, painted by local artists, showing a history of Salvation. The art gallery holds displays of local artists' works. Closed on our visit.

The Bell War Memorial is a worthy acknowledgement.

The Bell hotel is an old pub. Actual age unknown.

The Bell churches are classic for the time. All approaching or exceeded 100 years.

A stop over is recommended and check out that catholic garden.
