Information on the South Burnett Region
The South Burnett is the stage for a number of major annual festivals which draw visitors from all over Australia and we have a thriving art and craft industry, producing everything from pottery to clothing.
The South Burnett region offers many unique attractions and experiences. Our region is probably best known for peanuts (Kingaroy is famous as the “Peanut Capital of Australia!”), the Bunya Mountains National Park and wineries.
During the past decade the South Burnett has developed into one of the largest wine producing regions in Queensland. We now have numerous multi award-winning wineries complemented by a string of cellar doors.
Our beautiful Bunya Mountains National Park – the largest natural bunya pine forest anywhere in the world – draws visitors all year round to experience the awesome prehistoric beauty and prolific wildlife.
