Nanango

Queensland’s fourth oldest town and the second largest in the South Burnett, Nanango is a vibrant centre steeped in heritage while still retaining its tranquil rural charm. This friendly country town surrounded by vine scrublands and eucalypt forests enjoys cool summers and brisk winters. Tarong Power Station and Meandu Coal Mine are close by, and Nanango hosts the newly restored state-of-the-art South Burnett Energy and Visitor Information Centre, on the Burnett Highway, where you can learn about energy generation and see original 1933 motors. Be sure to stop by the centre for the children to stretch their legs and ride the power-generating bike complete with gobstopper reward.

Also on the D’Aguilar Highway are the Tipperary Flat pioneering displays that paint a vivid picture of life as it used to be. You can also visit nearby Ringsfield House – a large, grand turn of the century Queenslander designed by famed architect Robin Dods and faithfully restored and furnished to reflect its diverse history. Tour the house and stay for morning or afternoon tea or a tasty lunch on the verandah overlooking the gardens.

Get into the country spirit at the local horse races – Lee Park Racetrack hosts six meetings a year. For racing of a more hair- raising nature, the South Burnett Go-Kart track is also close by.

Other annual events where you can soak up the country vibe include the Nanango Show in April, Big Screen Australian Film Festival and the Nanango Arts Festival in May, the Nanango Country Music Muster in September, Waterhole Rocks in October and Mardi Gras on New Year’s Eve.
