Bunya Mountains National Park

Bunya Mountains, South Burnett Area
Free Entry
The Bunya Mountains National Park is perched 1100 metres high and 200 kilometres north-west of Brisbane and considered Queensland's second-oldest national park being gazetted in 1908. It's there ancient rainforest-clad peaks stand tall and shelter the world's largest formation of bunya pines (Araucaria bidwillii) - once a popular meeting place for Aboriginal folk to gather nuts in the 1800s. Trek 35-kilometres of walking trails, through eucalypt forest and natural grassland covered in hoop pines, rare orchids and herbs. Be rewarded with panoramic lookouts and keep an eye out for catbirds overhead and red-necked wallabies grazing. The Bunya Mountains offer the quiet allure of a retreat environment favoured by families, groups and honeymooners alike. The Bunya Mountains are pristine, peaceful and spectacular, and its position only three hours from Brisbane and the Fraser Coast and approximately one hour from Kingaroy, Nanango or Dalby makes it an ideal weekend or long weekend getaway for locals. Overnight in any of three designated camping and picnic areas at Dandabah, Westcott and Burtons Well with a permit, and keep an eye for glimpses of the rare sooty owl, noisy pitta and paradise riflebird.

Carroll Nature Reserve Kokoda Track

Kingaroy, South Burnett Area
Free Entry
In 1995 The Kingaroy Apex Club erected the plaque and gateway to mark the start of the Kokoda Track and the Carroll Nature Reserve. This was to commemorate the 50th anniversary of victory in the Pacific in 1945 and to honour the people who gave their lives defending Australia in the Pacific Islands. Descendants of Kingaroy's earliest settlers, Dan and Bridget Carroll, donated the use of these five-acres of soft wood vine scrub to the people of Kingaroy as a nature reserve. The area was dedicated in 1987; this marked the 100th anniversary of Dan Carroll's arrival in Australia from Ireland in 1887. The nature reserve is a peaceful oasis of bushland close to the centre of Kingaroy and the track offers an enjoyable walk through native bushland - a fitting memorial to those who gave their lives in the Pacific. Take time out to relax, enjoy the serenity of your surroundings and listen for the birds in the area. This track gives visitors the opportunity to stretch their legs after a long day of travelling. This conveniently located bird watching area will give sightings of Indian Koel, Dollar Bird, Rufous whistler, Rufous Fantail and Eastern Whipbird.

Ringsfield House

Nanango, South Burnett Area
Ringsfield House was built in 1908 for Mr and Mrs James William Davies Graham. It was designed by noted Queensland Architect Robin Dods and is distinguished by its wide verandahs, bay windows, large, airy bedrooms and built in cupboards. Ringsfield has enjoyed four lives so far! From 1908 till 1942 it was the private home of the Graham and Sullivan families. In 1942, the house became the Ringsfield Maternity Hospital. During the hospital’s 28 year history, between 3,000 and 4,000 babies were born here prior to the hospital finally closing in 1970. By 1973 the house was occupied again as a lifeline refuge and continued in this capacity for a further 20 years. Finally in 1992 the then Nanango Shire Council determined that Ringsfield should be restored as a museum and historical centre. Today, Ringsfield is an active community museum offering displays, art and crafts, and catering for small functions. As the headquarters of the Nanango Historical Society, it is a repository for historical photographs and archives. Also within the precinct is a replica coach house, cream shed, slab shepherd's hut, the town's original Presbyterian Church and Nanango's oldest surviving building - the State School built in 1866.
