Discover the rural charms of Tiaro and the surrounding hinterland of Queensland's beautiful Fraser Coast Hinterland. Visit the ancestral home of the Macadamia nut, dine in historic hotels or picnic riverside while taking in the picturesque scenery and genuine country hospitality.

The southern hinterland is defined by the Mary River which provides opportunities for camping, fishing and canoeing.

A quiet trip down the Mary can bring you face to face with some of Australia's rarest species including the ancient Australian lungfish and Mary River turtle, while country roads and old stock routes lend themselves to bushwalking, horse riding and mountain biking.

Begin your journey of discovery at the Tiaro Visitor Information Centre and Craft Cottage in the restored railway station on the Bruce Highway where you can stock up on locally produced art and crafts, and produces as well as local knowledge.

Free camping (two nights maximum) is allowed in the heart of Tiaro next to the town's central park, which has a skate park, shelters, electric barbecues, playground, toilets and showers.

Enjoy a hearty meal and good old fashioned hospitality in an historic country pub including Tiaro's Hideaway Station Hotel (circa 1881) or the Royal Hotel in its main street.

Taste some top quality bacon and smallgoods at one of the town's more unusual attractions, its butcher shop which is famous throughout Australia.

One of the best places to enjoy all the Mary River is Petrie Park, a couple of kilometres north of Tiaro.

Explore the wider area by following the Fraser Coast Country Drive Trail, which takes in old rail sidings, the historic Dickabram Bridge and small towns oozing country charm such as Bauple, Gundiah and Theebine.

Free overnight camping is allowed for self-contained caravans and RVs at Bauple and nearby Rosendale Park, Petrie Park and Brooweena.
