Description

Surrounded by picturesque farmlands interspersed with low rolling hills, Kingaroy is the largest town in the South Burnett and central to this diverse and beautiful region. Kingaroy plays host to a variety of accommodation options including modern motels, caravan parks, B&Bs, cottages and farmstays.

From here you can explore one of Australia's most exciting new boutique wine regions. With a low-humidity, Kingaroy and the South Burnett are ideally suited for grape cultivation. The first vines were planted in 1995 and now you can visit and taste wine at more than five cellar doors nearby.

There's plenty of variety to explore on the wine trail, at venues ranging from some of Queensland's largest wineries to small boutique vineyards. Verdelho is the region's signature varietal, along with all the usual favourites, and some exciting alternative varieties.

Kingaroy is renowned for its peanut production - you can't miss the towering silos. Stop off to try local icon The Peanut Van's tasty range of more than 20 types of flavoured peanuts as well as boiled, chocolate-coated and roasted peanuts. Kingaroy's rich soils also yield many other crops and there's a growing gourmet food scene with chefs featuring local produce on menus at many of the award-winning restaurants and cafés around town (try the mouth-watering local Barker's Creek Pork).

Drop into the Kingaroy Visitor Information Centre in the town's Arts and Heritage Precinct to chat to locals who can help you plan your itinerary. You can also purchase locally produced products, arts and craft. The precinct is home to Kingaroy Heritage Museum and a collection of historic buildings.

Taste South Burnett at the heritage-listed Old Butter Factory is a combined cellar door and providore where you can enjoy tastings of local boutique wines, regional gourmet produce and a range of freshly made fudge.

Panoramic views can be had from lookouts at Apex Park and at nearby Mt Wooroolin, which is also a nature refuge where you might spy regent bower birds or the black breasted quail. Water birds can be studied from bird hides at nearby Gordonbrook Dam and the Wooroolin wetlands.
