Dulong Lookout

Looking forward to the Heritage Interpretive Plaque arriving soon, to be installed at Dulong Lookout.

Hopefully the snippets of stories on the plaque will provide new understandings of our heritage and connection to this place – ‘Doolong’.

Dulong State School 
2017 Marks The 50th Anniversary Of The Closing Of The Dulong State School
Here’s how you can help!

To commemorate the contribution the school played in uniting the community and shaping young people, Dulong Futures is searching for forgotten stories, photos, and memorabilia.

Dulong Provisional School opened on 8 July 1895 on Philipps Road.  It became a State School in January 1909.  The building was constructed of pit sawn timber, a labour of love by our district’s pioneers. The building was later moved to a more central location, at the corner of Dulong School Road and Sherwell Road. The school closed several times due to low student enrollments.
