The South Burnett is the perfect blend of vibrant towns and country living. Located on the edge of the Great Dividing Range, it is an easy 2-hour drive north-west of Brisbane and directly west of the Sunshine Coast.
The region has two of the largest inland waterways (Lake Boondooma and Bjelke-Petersen Dam); perfect for water sports, fishing and getaways to suit any season. If you are a fan of the great outdoors the South Burnett offers bushwalking, cycling, bird watching, go-karting and four-wheel driving experiences to enjoy.
The opening of Queensland’s first sealed rail trail, the family-friendly South Burnett Rail Trail, provides the opportunity to explore 43.5km between Kingaroy and Murgon. Make sure you bring your bicycle and joggers to fully enjoy the country surrounds and welcoming towns.
For those looking for something a little more laid-back, visit the museums, art galleries, historic homesteads, wineries and cellar doors scattered throughout the region. Add some local produce – olives, bunya nuts, peanuts, capers, jams, chutneys and traditionally smoked smallgoods and you’ll experience a wine and food match made in the South Burnett!
