The North Burnett region is located approximately four hours drive north of Brisbane and only one hour west of Bundaberg.

Discover rugged gorges, imposing mountain ranges, serene rural views, the Burnett River and numerous townships along the way offering country hospitality. You can camp in a National Park, bushwalk, fish in the many dams, enjoy fresh produce from numerous roadside stalls or step back in time at a historical museum.

From Paradise Dam at Biggenden, along the many weirs on the Burnett River, through to Cania Dam at Monto, water skiing, boating and fishing opportunities abound with all areas providing ample camping and picnic facilities. Come and enjoy the “naturally beautiful” North Burnett and good old fashioned country hospitality.

The North Burnett region is based on an agricultural economy, and every form of farming enterprise exists.  With the twin citrus capitals of Gayndah and Mundubbera, to some of the best beef studs in the country right through to dairying, pork production and small crops. 

Take "The Circle" as a side trip on your journey or travel through the district on the Burnett Highway (A3), which is part of Australia's Country Way from Brisbane (or Sydney) right through to Rockhampton.
