Dululu is a small town in Central Queensland, Australia, in northern Banana Shire. The town sits at the junction of the Burnett and Leichhardt highways, 70 kilometres (43 mi) south-west of Rockhampton, Queensland and 610 kilometres (380 mi) north-west of Brisbane. At the 2011 census, Dululu and the surrounding area had a population of 139.[1]

History[edit]

The town's original name was Bunerba. The Railway Department changed this to Dululu in 1915 to avoid confusion with Buneru, another town located near Wowan. The name derives from an Indigenous word meaning "soft".[2]

Dululu Post Office opened by 1920 (a receiving office had been open from 1915).[3]
