Southern Queensland Country

South Burnett


Drive three hours north west from Brisbane and you will find yourself surrounded by red soil paddocks, vineyards and panoramic mountain views.

South Burnett is a region of contrasts, where country lifestyle meets unexplored walking trails and ancient rainforest. At 1,100 metres above sea level, the Bunya Mountains crowns this country retreat with a mix of subtropical rainforest, open forests and woodlands shooting off the Great Dividing Range.

For birdwatchers and nature lovers, the South Burnett region offers a who’s who of native wildlife. Wallabies, pademelons and 121 species of birds, including king parrots, satin bowerbirds and crimson rosellas call this place home.

With lush rainforests, waterfalls around nearly every corner and a wide range of walking tracks to explore, South Burnett offers a bounty of natural treasures. There are also plenty of water sport activities with Lake Bondooma and Bjelke-Peterson Dam both offering great fishing, boating and water-skiing facilities.

For a bit of indulgence, head to the towns of Kingaroy and Murgon and explore a range of gourmet food and wineries. Murgon is home to the largest vineyard in Queensland and offers six vineyards and cellar doors within a 15-kilometre radius of the town.
