Welcome to Yuleba

Yuleba (Yule/bah) (Aboriginal for Water Lilly) is a small town situated in south-west of Queensland, 60 Km east of Roma and 420 Km north-west of Brisbane.  With approximately 200 people within the township itself and roughly another 100 people on outlying properties surrounding the town. Yuleba is famously known as the place where the last Australian Cobb & Co Coach stopped and ran no more in 1924.  Yuleba has a colourful history with stories of well known cattle duffers such as George Stanley and links to the Kenniff Brothers, notorious bushrangers.  With the serenity of Judd’s Lagoon only a few kilometres out of town, which is also a favoured fishing spot and free camping area, there is fascinating history and modern living combined in the lifestyle here, making it a wonderful place to retire, raise a family or just to visit for a time or a day.
