Mount Wooroolin Lookout

    You’ll find great views from Mount Wooroolin Lookout, just over four kilometres west of Kingaroy. Established in 1988 as a bicentennial project by Kingaroy Shire Council, the area features a grassed area with picnic tables and wood barbecues.

    The elevated viewing platform offers 360 degree panoramic views of the surrounding countryside: Coolabunia Hill, the Bunya Mountains, Queensland’s second oldest National Park and Tarong Power Station, which generates approximately one fifth of Queensland’s power. To the northwest is pretty Gordonbrook Dam, the source of Kingaroy’s water supply.

    The ramp to the viewing platform is smooth for disabled access, but care needs to be taken, as it’s quite steep. The nature reserve is 160 acres of endangered eucalypt woodland and dry vine forest. Bird watchers are often rewarded with sightings of Regent Bower Birds, Black Breasted Button Quail and Eastern Shrike-tit.

    Visitors are advised to take care while ascending or descending the narrow sealed road to the top; it’s not suitable for cars towing caravans or trailers.

    Gordonbrook Dam

      Gordonbrook Dam is the sole water supply for Kingaroy and a peaceful spot to unwind. Originally built in 1941 as a water supply for the Royal Australian Air Force Training Base during WWII, the dam wall was raised in 1987 to inundate an area of 229 hectares – the dam we have today.

      Take in the beautiful dam views from the viewing platform or a variety of walking tracks along the waters edge. Enjoy a picnic at the tables provided and use the wood fired barbecues.

      The dam provides a haven for over 100 different species of birds. Bring your binoculars and camera to record sightings. The area is a significant migratory water bird site with sightings of Jacanas, White Breasted Sea Eagles and Pygmy Geese as well as the more common water birds such as Black Ducks and Egrets.

      Camping is not permitted at the dam along with swimming, fishing, sailing and low horse-power boating due to blue/green algae in the water.

      Kingaroy Heritage Museum

        Kingaroy’s fascinating Heritage Museum is housed in what was the town’s powerhouse from 1925 to 1952 – and is now part of the Kingaroy Information, Art and Heritage Precinct.

        The history of the local peanut industry is a focus of the collection, with exhibits of agricultural machinery showing the ingenuity and inventiveness of the local farmers and tradespeople. Machinery for farming peanuts was not available in the early 1920s, so farmers invented their own. The first being a bicycle powered thresher built in 1909, then a local farmer converted an American-made wheat thresher to thresh peanuts. In the late 1920s. Mr Harry Young designed and built his very own dinosaur – a stationary peanut thresher.

        These machines are on display in the museum along with other prototypes of peanut harvesting machinery designed and built by local inventors. Some of their ideas are still in use today.

                                Hillview Cottages is a unique Booie Range retreat and is the perfect place to stay while you discover the beautiful South Burnett and Bunya Mountains. There are three self-contained and fully equipped cottages (all with double spa baths, airconditioning and wood fires) overlooking this magnificent 57 acre property which has views that will make you sigh and are so good for the soul. Each cottage has its own historic charm – from a converted dairy and a worker’s cottage to a historic church (circa 1912).

                                Only two and a half hours drive from Brisbane or two hours from the Sunshine Coast or Toowoomba, Hillview is the perfect destination to recharge the batteries in an area that has everything you need for a break away. While in the South Burnett enjoy the wineries, museums, art galleries, restaurants and quaint country towns, all within a short drive of Hillview.

                                Visit Pottique Lavender Farm for a huge array of antiques and collectables and all things lavender or visit historic Taabinga Homestead or Ringsfield House Nanango. At night visit the Kingaroy Observatory for an amazing experience.

                                Sheralyn and Daniel invite you to share their piece of paradise and enjoy the magic of Hillview.

                                  Punters can anticipate a ‘pig day out’ at the Kingaroy BaconFest in August 2024. The three-day sizzling food festival in Queensland’s beautiful South Burnett celebrates the versatility of bacon and puts Australian pork on centre stage.

                                  Discover the joy of bacon fries and bacon ice cream at a two-day food market featuring specialist food trucks, attend a bacon-eating competition, or learn from the best in the business at cooking demonstrations and masterclasses. We showcase celebrity chefs like Miguel Maestre, Alastair MacLeod, Dan and Steph Mulheron, with special appearances of local produce and butcher wars contestants. You can enjoy Ready, Steady Bacon on the stage, listen to the stories and Flavours of Our Land with Carl Rackemann or just chill out to music all weekend.

                                  Bacon lovers with a flair for fashion may want to enter a BaconFest pinup pageant or Beard of BaconFest contest conducted by popular pinup icon Bettie Butcher. There’s even a Rasher’s Rush cycling and running event along the South Burnett Rail Trail and special activities for little piglets with a corner of the festival devoted to kids.

                                  The crackling on the cake will be a 24 hour Australasian Barbecue Alliance sanctioned SunPork Smoke-off competition.

                                  Ticketed events not to be missed include ‘Wine and Swine’ on Friday night, showcasing local wine and produce, and a ‘Long Table Breakfast’ on Sunday morning.
