  • Notes: Dalveen, Queensland, Australia is a small village (pop. 50) with about 150 more in the surrounding farm areas. "When the railway was being pushed through from Warwick to Stanthorpe in 1880, many of the men working on the line were Scottish and after our tunnel was built for the railway it was felt by these fellows that the area and hills were very like the 'Dark Dalveen Pass' in Scotland so the next station on the line was named 'Dalveen'." Situated at 900 metres, Dalveen is not tropical like the rest of Queensland but is cool with very cold winters and the area grows stone fruit, grapes, vegetables and beef cattle and sheep thrive. This tartan was designed and woven by 83 year old Dalveen resident Norma Marsh. The green and yellow are for the prolific wattle, the red and blue are for the mountain King parrots (Alisterus scapularis) seen in the orchards and gum trees. The application was submitted by the Dalveen Sports Club. The Dalveen Pass is a route through the Lowther Hills in Dumfries and Galloway through which flows Carron Water.
