Amid tranquil bush land and diverse farmlands, the historic town of Murgon, settled in 1846, offers a relaxed pace and the perfect base to discover the Barambah Wine Trail. The trail takes in the nearby winery area of Moffatdale where you’ll find the largest vineyard in Queensland and five vineyards and cellar doors within a 15-kilometre radius of Murgon.
Drop into Murgon Information Centre for maps of the wine trail and advice on local nature trails and the Tableland Scenic Drive. For an unsurpassed view across the South Burnett countryside head up to Boat Mountain, a flat-topped ridge shaped like an upturned boat, which rises to 589 metres. Walking tracks allow birdwatchers and naturalists to see native flora and fauna in a virtually undisturbed habitat.
Murgon’s early dairy industry days are honoured in The Dairy and Heritage Museum, the only one of its kind in Queensland. The museum also has a range of telephones and manual exchanges, all in working order.
Nearby Yallakool Caravan & Recreation Park at Bjelke-Petersen Dam is an angler’s paradise.
