Blackbutt

Blackbutt is an attractive small town surrounded by native forests. Situated on the D'Aguilar Highway, at the southern entrance to the South Burnett. 'Blackbutt' is the common name for the Eucalyptus Piluralis tree, native to the area. Often referred to as the 'Timber town', Blackbutt has a strong association with the timber industry dating back to the mid-1800s when European settlers first arrived here.

The distinctive song of the Bellbird can be heard in the natural surrounds of Blackbutt. Bushwalkers, cyclists and horse riders tend to use the Blackbutt Rail Head as their main access point to the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail - refer to the Yarraman section for more details. Blackbutt is also a great place to join the Bicentennial National Trail, a trail open to walkers, mountain bikers and horse riders which links up
over 5,000km of old stock routes along the Great Dividing Range from Victoria to Tropical North Queensland.

In town, next to the park, you'll find the Visitor Information Centre housed in a replica of an old slab hut. Ask for advice on local art and directions to the Woodfired Bakery where you can buy one of Australia's best pies. Cosy accommodation can be found at a range of quality establishments. If
you're travelling in September plan for The Bloomin' Beautiful Blackbutt Festival, a celebration of agriculture, the beauty of the countryside and the local creative community.
