Kingaroy


Kingaroy or the ‘peanut’ capital of Australia is located 220 kilometres north-west of Brisbane and is fast becoming a highly esteemed tourist attraction for the South Burnett region.

Today, it is more than just the small country town that produces over 35,000 tons of peanuts each year; it has now become the business hub of the region. It’s growing CBD provides much of the region’s shopping, commercial and government services, while still boasting that peaceful country lifestyle. The rapidly growing suburb is currently sitting at a population of more than 9,000 people with more to come as industry booms in the area, helping the creation of many new jobs in the region.  Kingaroy is also home to a heritage museum, an art gallery, beautiful restaurants, all other important amenities and many prestigious schools as well as a TAFE facility.

As well as all the added commercial benefits of the fast growing town, Kingaroy is also surrounded by extensive (and very picturesque) farmlands combined with low rolling hills. The stunning Booie Range lies immediately north-east of the town and the Bunya Mountains which is only about 55km to the south-west. Because of these unique highlights, the tourism industry for the Kingaroy area is also booming with popular attractions like the internationally-renowned Bunya Mountains now being joined by numerous quality vineyards and seeing tourists coming from far and wide to enjoy the sites and the quality wine.
