You're already there so why not go a bit further.
From Dalby, you can take a train or bus further west to Tara and eventually to Roma on the "Roma Line".
Roma is the location of Queensland's major oil reserves.
Another line takes you through Chinchilla and the vast sheep and cattle properties.
Most "graziers" (a grazier grows animals, a "farmer" grows grain) will welcome you to stay for a small price or maybe for free if you offer to help around the "station" or help in the "homestead" for a day or 2.
From these western towns, the next stop is "beyond the black stump", a fictitious place indicating the "real bush".
The Americans say "go west", Australians say "go bush".
Beyond the back stump you have such fascinating places as Bollon (capital of the cotton area. Toompine, the last roadside hotel in Austrlia. Betoota, Windorah and Birdsville signal the beginnings of the most beautiful deserts in the world.
For the really adventurous, THIS is where it all happens.
This is the area of my teen years where my father had a small sheep and cattle property.
