Dallarnil is a rural town and locality in the North Burnett Region, Queensland, Australia.[2][3] In the 2016 census, Dallarnil had a population of 230 people.[1] The neighbourhood of Stanton is within the locality (25°19′59″S 152°03′00″E / 25.333°S 152.0500°E / -25.333; 152.0500 (Stanton, Queensland)).[4]

History

The town takes its name from the railway station name on the Isis railway line, assigned by the Queensland Railways Department on 2 September 1911. The railway station name was derived from the name of a pastoral run name, and is a corruption of an Aboriginal word, "conalaman" meaning big hill.[2]

Stanton takes its name from the railway station name on the Isis railway line assigned by the Queensland Railways Department on 16 July 1914, which in turn takes its name from the pastoral run Stanton Harcourt named in 1854.[4]

In 1887, 42,240 acres (17,090 ha) of land were resumed from the Stanton Harcourt pastoral run. The land was offered for selection for the establishment of small farms on 17 April 1887.[5]

In October 1912, 20 allotments of the Dallarnil Township were advertised to be auctioned by Charles White of Biggenden. A map advertising the auction states the allotments were immediately opposite the railway station with the railway line to terminus nearing completion.[6][7]
