The North Burnett encompasses six main townships - Biggenden, Eidsvold, Gayndah, Monto, Mt Perry and Mundubbera. These townships service around twenty-five villages and farming catchments. You will find the North Burnett is a real contrast to the coastal areas and where you will experience the Australian country at its best.
You'll 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, throw in a line or go tubing and skiing on the many dams, enjoy fresh produce from numerous roadside stalls or step back in time at a historical museum.
If it’s organised activities you are looking for, there is hardly a weekend where you won’t find something happening across the region. Festivals and celebrations are regular events and with a number of picnic races scheduled throughout the year there is plenty of opportunity to get out, socialise and have some fun. If golf is your way of relaxing, you will find a Golf Club in each of the six townships. From fitness to fishing, you will find a community that shares your passions and you will always have something to do.
The North Burnett is where you can really 'get away from it all' and enjoy yourself. Take 'The Circle' as a side trip on your journey or travel through the district on the Burnett Highway (A3), which is part of the alternate route from Brisbane (or Sydney) right through to Rockhampton.
