Full Itinerary

On the southern approach to the region, Buxton is only 10 minutes from the highway on the Burrum River and is great for fishing or just taking it easy.

Childers is the next stop, you could spend a good couple of day exploring this historic town, several award winning wineries, animal encounters with a variety of reptile enclosures and shows, blast into the past with a visit to the Pharmaceutical Museum and Military Museum, tickle the tastebuds with the unique homemade ice-cream or a stop at the peanut van. Or discover your inner critic by visiting the Palace Gallery and walking along the artistic main street - pavement art and creative sculpture await.

Suggested Stops

- Burrum River
- Childers

Leaving Childers in the rear vision mirror, the next discovery is only 10 minutes down the road - Apple Tree Creek. Famous for its rodeos, it also houses the largest free flight walk-in aviary in Australia, at around two acres in size. Thousands of feathered friends await your undivided attention.

Departing Apple Tree Creek, half way to the next town, you travel through Booyal, a small dot on the map which can divert you into the North Burnett Shire within the Bundaberg North Burnett Region.

They say 'it's so nice they named it twice' - Gin Gin is the next port of call. This town is at the crossroads for discovering the magic of the region, but has a story of its own. Learn the struggle of pioneers against the regions only bushranger - the Wild Scotchman - at the courthouse gallery in the main street, or at the historical society which also holds a country market on a Saturday.

The newly transformed and artistic main street shares Gin Gin's journey from the central meeting place of the Wakka Wakka tribe through to today's booming population.

On the outskirts of Gin Gin, within the free rest area, are four monuments representing the town's beginnings and also sharing in its dark past between settlers and aboriginals at Gin Gin Creek. Located nearby is also the gateway through to Mount Perry and the North Burnett.

Journeying north on the Bruce Highway 20 kilometres from Gin Gin is Lake Monduran. When this body of water reaches 100 per cent, which it has in recent years, it holds a larger volume of water than the Sydney Harbour. A vital source 'liquid gold' to the farms of the region through many irrigation channels which can be seen throughout. But also is claimed to be the most southerly point in which you can land the elusive 'Barra'. But don't panic if you're unsuccessful as you can cry over those monsters in viewing tanks located behind the caravan park kiosk.

Leaving the lake the journey north is a nice easy 80 kilometres to the next town, Miriam Vale, which will lead you to Agnes Water and the Town of 1770, an historic town to commemorate the landing of Captain James Cook in 1770.

Kroombit Tops National Park

Biloela, Banana Area
Free Entry
Off-road adventures begin at Kroombit Tops. This is the domain of the hardened all-terrain traveller who thrives on a challenge and isn’t afraid to take on the rough stuff. Only suitable in dry conditions, traversing the park via the Razorback Track and Loop Road will take you across rivers and deep ravines to fantastic heights where the sites and hikes are in the midst of wild country.

Mount Scoria Conservation Park

Thangool, Banana Area
Free Entry
Mount Scoria rises up from the surrounding plain, a single and spectacular highlight against an otherwise flat landscape. Across its peak, multi-sided rocks are regimented into large vertical and semi-vertical pillars or columns, blunt at the top as if they’d been cropped.

Lake Callide

Biloela, Banana Area
Free Entry
Lake Callide is located 12 kilometres from Biloela via sealed road and approximately 90 kilometres south-west of Gladstone via the Dawson Highway. While compact, the lake provides visitors with rewarding fishing - especially for golden perch (yellowbelly) and has in recent times been well stocked with barramundi.

150th Meridian

Moura, Banana Area
Free Entry
Located one kilometre east of Moura on the Dawson Highway, the 150th Meridian marker shows the position of the imaginary line (150 °E) on which Queensland (Eastern Standard) time is based. At the time of the equinox, a day is exactly 12 hours long anywhere on the Meridian line.

Goovigen

Goovigen, Banana Area
Goovigen is a small rural village in the region’s northern farming heartland. A short distance north-west of Jambin off the Burnett Highway, fewer than 300 people live in the town. The streets of Goovigen are as neat as a pin and the heritage buildings have been either restored to their former glory or updated for present needs.

Baralaba

Baralaba, Banana Area
Old fashioned values and friendly townsfolk are the hallmarks of Baralaba. Those traits and a stubborn streak for sticking around. More than a century of economic upheaval has threatened the town on many an occasion, but Baralaba locals are a stoic lot.

Mount Morgan

Mount Morgan, Rockhampton Area
Mount Morgan is an historical mining town nestled on the Dee River a short 38 kilometre drive from Rockhampton. The town is rich in nineteenth century Queensland colonial history and has artefacts and relics from the gold rush days that visitors can experience.

Duaringa

Duaringa, Central Highlands Area
Duaringa is located 107 kilometres west of Rockhampton along the Capricorn Highway. The small town is the essence of a small rural community. Duaringa is the oldest township in Duaringa Shire with buildings dating back to the 1860s and a corner of the local hotel has been preserved to show how early pioneers lived.

Thangool

Thangool, Banana Area
More than 130 years in the making, Thangool first opened to settlers, who tried it as a sheep run in the 1850s. Soon to fail, beef cattle were introduced and later, dairy and cotton took hold. Based on the success of these industries, a make-shift town sprang up.

Wowan

Wowan, Banana Area
Wowan is small rural township steeped in history and located approximately 70 kilometres north-west of Biloela in the Banana Shire. Nestled amongst ancient gums and a myriad of creeks and gullies, the town was settled back in 1912;
