Outdoor Experiences

From magnificent mountain views to wondrous waterfalls

Located on the edge of the Great Dividing Range, the South Burnett is an easy two hour drive from Brisbane and located directly west of the Sunshine Coast.

From the mountain peaks to the waters deep, the South Burnett is an untapped natural wonderland waiting to be explored.

Explore the ancient Bunya Mountains, scenic forests and Queensland’s second largest National Park, along with the crystal waterfalls, welcoming creeks and three major dams – Boondooma  ,Bjelke-Petersen, and Gordonbrook.

Travel the abandoned railways on Australia’s longest rail trail, the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. Spanning 161km, ride, walk or run the journey that the trains once travelled, taking in the quaint towns and villages along the way. The Kilkivan to Kingaroy trail includes Queensland’s longest sealed trail at 44km.

Enjoy the change of pace, take time to smell the roses, and disconnect from the busyness of life in order to reconnect with the ones that matter most. There is no shortage of friendly faces in the South Burnett and it won’t take long for you to feel right at home in our backyard.

Bike, walk, hike, 4WD, paddle and swim your way through the ever-changing landscapes of the South Burnett.
