Try: Take a challenging short sharp hike up Mount Le Brum to two craters which form shallow lakes throughout the year. Enjoy a bush picnic at Kalliwa Hut in Good Night Scrub National Park and try to spot the 60+ species of butterfly found throughout the park.

Art Snob

Let's talk colour, texture and composition. The North Burnett has no shortage of art with local galleries hosting exhibitions highlighting local and visiting artists, street art and the naturally beautiful scenery seamlessly painting a picture on the horizon. Why not get creative yourself? Be inspired by the picturesque landscape and put pen to paper and brush to paint.

Try: Explore Lister Street Parkland in Monto with it's creative and intriguing metal and sandstone sculptures. Check out the art scene at Gayndah Art Gallery and see what inspires local artists.

Sensational Citrus

Mundubbera is dubbed the Citrus Capital of Queensland with thousands of acres of citrus orchards lining the roads. Local cafés feature fresh local citrus on their menus and the roadside stalls are always abundant with oranges and mandarins.

Try: Make sure you pull off when you can and grab some freshly picked by the farmer citrus for a fresh squeezed juice, or an orange and poppy seed cake. Come visit us for the Gayndah Orange Festival (2019 – biannually), celebrating everything citrus with events of all sorts from gala dinners to market days to art shows.
