Bauple

Discover the ancestral home of the Macadamia Nut with a visit to the charming village of Bauple in Queensland's Fraser Coast.

Bauple sits in the foothills of Bauple Mountain and offers the chance to relive the pioneering past, discover incredible nut facts and enjoy locally grown nuts products.

The nut was discovered thousands of years ago on the Mountain by the Butchulla and Kabi Kabi People who would meet in large gatherings to feast upon the prized delicacy.

At Bauple's Macadamia House, visit a working nut sorting and drying facility and see displays of macadamia products. Crack nuts on the 'cracka pad' and take a seat in "Nosh", the iconic Nutmobile whose celebrity passengers have included Prince Charles and Lady Di.

At the Bauple and District Museum, which opens daily, delve into the area's impressive history through photographs, early faming tools, antiques and rare coins and telephones. There is even a 3.3 metre skin from a crocodile shot in the Mary River in the 1960s.

Picnic in the Museum's gardens next to a restored 1907 locomotive, similar to the one used by the Bauple Sugar Mill.

Ask at the museum about the Bauple Historic Walk - which is a self-guided walk to discover the town's key historical sites.

While the Bauple (or Bopple) nut trees once grew prolifically in the area, today the original trees are kept safe in a scientific reserve on the mountain. You can still see four examples of original varieties directly across from the Museum as well as large commercial plantings around Bauple.

Camp for free in the heart of Bauple with overnight stays available for self-contained caravans and RVs. There is another free RV site at Rossendale Park, just outside of Bauple.

During your visit, join in community events at the Bauple Community Shed and Band Hall. Hinterland markets are held every fourth Saturday. The Bauple Nut Bash is held every September.

Explore the wider area by following the Fraser Coast Country Drive, which takes in the historic Dickabram Bridge and small towns oozing country charm such as Tiaro and Theebine.
