Dalby Queensland & Prickly Pears

Dalby is going towards Toowoomba and its claim to fame is because of the Cactoblastis moth
By the year 1920, prickly pear had infested 58 million acres of land in New South Wales and Queensland. Spreading at an alarming rate of 1 million acres a year ! When the Cactoblastis insect was first released. within six years most of the original pear had been destroyed. It was an amazing result and a monument to the moth has been erected near the town centre The RSL club we have been using has a bare concrete floor that only a few weeks ago was carpeted BUT during the floods the club floor was covered by 12 inches of water.Walking around the river edge it is possible to see how much water had covered this town with debris still trapped high in the trees The golf course is in bad need of repair too !! Main industry here is Cotton and the road edges look “snowy” with bits of cotton that hav fallen of trucks !!
