Kingaroy

Surrounded by picturesque farmlands and low rolling hills, Kingaroy is the central town for the diverse and beautiful region. Well serviced by numerous large retail chains, and many services that you would expect to find in larger towns, Kingaroy offers a variety of accommodation from modern motels, cabins and caravan parks to cosy Bed and Breakfasts, self-contained retreats, vineyard cottages and farm stays.

From here you can explore one of Australia’s most exciting new boutique wine regions. With a low-humidity climate similar to the acclaimed Hunter Valley, Kingaroy and wider region is ideal suited for grape cultivation. The first vines were planted in 1995 and now you can visit and taste wine at four cellar doors nearby (plus another five in the Moffatdale region, near Murgon). You can taste and learn about a variety of wines direct from the wine makers at wineries ranging from some of the State’s largest to small boutique vineyards. Verdelho is the region’s signature varietal, along with all the usual favourites, and exciting alternative varieties, such as sangiovese and viognier.

Renowned for peanuts (you can’t miss the towering silos in the town centre), the region’s rich soils and lush pastures also yield produce ranging from dragon fruit, ginger, stone fruit and avocados to tasty capers, pumpkins, beef and Barkers Creek Pork.

There’s a growing gourmet food scene with chefs featuring local produce on menus at many of the award winning restaurants and cafés around town.

Visit the Kingaroy Visitor Information Centre in the town’s Arts and Heritage Precinct to chat to locals who can help you plan your itinerary. The adjoining Kingaroy Regional Art Gallery is a cultural hub offering diverse monthly exhibitions by local and visiting artists. The precinct is home to Kingaroy Heritage Museum and a collection of historic buildings.
