Whats with the strange name?
No we don’t grow bananas here! Originating in the 1860’s the town takes its name from a bullock (a castrated bull) that had a dun (yellowish) coloured hide. Banana was a working bullock well known to stockmen for coaching (leading) the wilder cattle into the yards. Old Banana was left to rest in a creek that became known as Banana Creek, and the township name followed. A statue of Banana Bullock is located in town.
