Located north west of Brisbane, the South Burnett is bordered by the Great Dividing Range and the flourishing red paddocks of Kingaroy. This region is the fastest developing wine area in Queensland. Currently there are 600 acres in 25 vineyards in the area ranging in size from experimental plots of one acre to large commercial vineyards. With its warm summer days, crisp cool nights and fertile soils, the South Burnett is a haven of vineyards stretching from Goomeri in the north, through the Murgon region to the Bunya Mountains, Kingaroy and south to Nanango. Along the way vineyards can be seen alongside olive groves, timber plantations, orchards and traditional agriculture. This palate of contrasting colours makes for breathtaking scenery and each stop provides a new experience.
