Description

Nanango is one of Queensland's oldest towns and is proud of its unique heritage and colourful past. This past is beautifully captured in the historic Ringsfield House. Although Nanango is the home of the Tarong Power Station and Coal Mine, the town has retained the tranquil and beautiful setting of a country town with all businesses offering genuine country hospitality.

Fossickers for gold still come to the Seven-Mile Diggings, an area that is also popular with four-wheel drive enthusiasts. Fossicking and recreational permits can be obtained from the Visitor Information Centre.

Tradition still lives on in the vibrant racing industry in Nanango, with regular race meetings in a rural setting. The variety of bird life in the shire is unsurpassed. At the southern entrance to Nanango is Tipperary Flat - featuring pioneering displays and interpretive signs and walks. Take in the mural walk and chainsaw sculptures, which continue the pioneer theme.

Further to the west lies Maidenwell, gateway to the Bunya Mountains, where Coomba Falls is worth a visit and the walking trails a pleasant challenge.

Nanango is part of the South Burnett food and wine trail and is not only an area where culture and history meet, but one that has an enviable lifestyle. The town is located about 20 minutes' drive south-east of Kingaroy.
