Banana is a rural town and locality in the Shire of Banana, Queensland, Australia.
Why is the town called Banana?
A favourite of local stockmen in the 1860’s, Banana the bullock, so named for his yellowish colouring, would help herd wild cattle into holding yards. When Banana died, the gully was given the name in honour of his feats.
A replica of Banana proudly stands in the town, a warm reminder of his legacy to those pioneering days.
A key junction point between the Dawson and Leichhardt highways, from Banana travellers can reach all the wonders of the region in next to no time.

Coffee and Beer a hit. Banana Hotel has a drive-thru set up. Good coffee with a proper barista
