YARRAMAN is a town in South East Queensland, known for Wild Horses. The town is located 181 kms northwest of the state capital, Brisbane, on the junction of the New England and D’Aguilar highways. Yarraman is a relaxed country town and most of its CBD is built on the side of a steep hill. It has a low-humidity climate of cool summers and brisk winters.
The town is surrounded by a mixture of commercial hoop pine plantations, State Forests and picturesque South Burnett grazing countryside. The Tarong Power Station is located only a short drive to the north and the Ted Pukallus Weir (a popular local fishing hole) is located about 5km south of town.
Yarraman has a rich timber heritage and one of its major industries is the Yarraman Sawmill (the other is the Yarraman Bacon Factory). There are a number of well-marked walking and driving trails through the nearby pine forests and the area is very popular with bushwalkers and naturalists.
One of the town’s major tourist attractions is Heritage House, the home of the Yarraman Historical Society. Heritage House was established in 1997 in a former boys’ boarding convent – originally as a museum, but now also incorporating extensive art, craft, tapestry and timber displays. It’s now being extended as a terminus for the Brisbane Valley Heritage Trail.
Cooyar – a short drive west of Yarraman on the New England Highway – is home to the Palms National Park (one of the smallest national parks in Australia) and the Cooyar suspension bridge. A platypus sanctuary is also being developed there.
Major annual events include the Cooyar Show and Rodeo (held at the Cooyar Showgrounds each February); the Yarraman Horse Ride (held each March); the Yarraman Family Fishing Competition (held each November) and the Yarraman Christmas Carnival (each December).
This plate comes standard as a flat and non-embossed plate and for a little more cost we are able to give it a pressed out embossed border, so you have a choice. Please select your preference from the drop down menu.
These novelty number plates are made from high quality aluminium and the artwork applied by a dye sublimation process with a lovely gloss finish. They measure 37 x 13 cm, exactly the same as the traditional fully embossed type of plate and look just like our other Aussie made novelty number plates; even the mounting holes are in exactly the same positions, so they can easily be hung on display indoors or outdoors. One great advantage the flat non-embossed version is that owing to the absence of embossed border, and being just under 1 mm thick, it’s quite flexible and will flex about 10 cm from the centre, so can be mounted on curved surfaces.
Each embossed rim style plate is sealed in a clear plastic sleeve, and each flat non-embossed plate is shrink-sealed in plastic film, so both types are ready for retail display, plus we offer the option of fixing them to a cardboard display card, so they can then be hung and displayed on the same display racks that are used for the other Aussie size plates we sell. To see what the display card looks like please click here. For protection during delivery we use extra packing materials to ensure they arrive in tip-top condition

Important note about images we provide : Just as we sometimes see that “pricing is subject to change without notice”, so too are “designs subject to change without notice”. In 99.99% of cases, what you see on Dixie’s website or brochure is what you get. However, there are the odd times when designs have changed in some small way (eg: maybe a logo moves to a different location on the item, or the colour changes). Sometimes this information doesn’t always trickle down until the new designs are manufactured and shipped to Dixie. We hope this is helpful and understandable.
