Kingaroy

Named after the aboriginal word for ‘red ant’ and renowned for its towering peanut silos, Kingaroy is home to several quality wineries located both in town and scattered throughout the surrounding countryside. From shiraz to chardonnay, the range is wide and quality is high. This rich agricultural area is producing a host of gourmet delights, including olives and cheeses, to complement the wines and more traditional crops such as peanuts!

Take a farm tour and find out more about the agricultural side of life, from growing, to harvesting to tasting! The South Burnett is a myriad of contrasting colours – rich red earth patch-worked with vivid green crops.

At the Mount Wooroolin Nature Refuge bird watchers may be rewarded with sightings of Regent Bower Birds, Black Breasted Quail or the Eastern Shrike-tit. Water birds can be studied from bird hides Gordonbrook Dam. Groups and families will find plenty to do with an abundance of free or low cost tours and activities on offer.

The town is constantly progressing and expanding but remains proud of its long and rich history. One of the region’s earliest homesteads is open to the public by appointment and is immaculately maintained for a true experience of yesteryear. The Heritage Museum also depicts the pastoral and agricultural history of Kingaroy.

Kingaroy caters for special interest shoppers with plenty of arts, crafts and antiques in and around the town. Much of the local craft and produce can be seen at the Visitor information centre, including the distinctive ochre Kingaroy mud – dyed shirts.

Kingaroy has a range of accommodation to offer its visitors. You can choose from modern motels, well-appointed cabins and excellent caravan park & villa accommodation. Or try a hosted accommodation option, staying in one of the lovely bed & breakfasts, homestead retreats or farm-stays.
