A pretty little ’ten house town’, Dagun village is the centre of a very diverse agricultural industry.
www.dagungrowersmarket.com to find out more about the Dagin Growers Market.
On driving through the hills of rich red soil you’ll see pineapples, bananas, mangoes, lychees, stonefruit, avocados, citrus, macadamias, pecans, flowers and a salad-bowl of brightly-coloured vegetables, whilst the river-flats mainly support dairy and beef enterprises, including Cooloola Milk, an independent dairy producing its own milk and cheeses from a pure herd of beautiful Jersey cows.
Dagun village itself has a well-resourced primary school set in shady grounds. Mary Valley Timbers is here also. Using only hardwood, this old-style mill provides structural and furniture timbers and sleepers for use on local and interstate railway lines and for landscaping.
Dagun’s exciting venture is the development of the Dagun Station Precinct. The Dagun Community Group operate Dagun Station to provide visitors to the Station with some experience of the hospitality of the area. The Station operates on Wednesday, Saturday & Sunday to meet the Mary Valley Heritage Rail trainsand offer passengers tastings of our Moffatdale Ridge Wines from the Murgon area. There is also a range of local produce in season plus souvenirs and other products for sale.
Jason Kinsella from Moffatdale Ridge wines has developed some special wines for Dagun in the form of a 'Goods Shed' port and a Pineapple Liqueur.
The Dagun Community Group Volunteers are constantly working to improve the Station precinct & Buildings & all funds generated are put back into the facilities.
