Tour Itinerary

Day 1: (D)

Home to Kingaroy

Thu 3 Mar 22

Welcome to our tour to Kingaroy, located in the South Burnett region. Our tour features some fantastic local produce from pumpkin scones to gourmet platters and boutique wines. The morning is spent on the coach as we make our way to our destination. On arrival we enjoy an afternoon of sightseeing, beginning at the Kingaroy Visitor Information Centre Heritage Museum before being joined on the coach by a local guide. Traditionally, Kingaroy has always been the centre of Australia’s peanut and navy bean industries. However, since the early 1990s it has also developed as a wine hub. Prior to making our way to our accommodation, we stop at the Peanut Van which has become a Kingaroy icon. You’ll find addictive peanut flavours from curry, maple bacon, ginger honey to salted caramel.

Day 2 : (BLD)

Local Produce and Homesteads

Fri 4 Mar 22

We head to Bethany Farm, the home of the Bjelke–Peterson family for more than 100 years and one of the most famous farms in Australia. Every year people come to visit Bethany to see this farm for themselves and enjoy their delicious pumpkin scones with the family. We travel to the beautiful 160-acre property, Bunya Red Farm. Known for growing capers and caperberries, they share the land with a peanut corn crop rotation, cattle, alpacas, a veggie patch and their much-loved cats and dogs. We embark on a guided tour of the property and learn how Allan and Mandy became the first caper growing farm in the South Burnett region. Here we enjoy a freshly prepared lunch and local produce tastings. Travelling to Taabinga Homestead, we are welcomed with peaceful surroundings and a strong sense of history. We are greeted by hosts Colin Marshall and Libby Leu as they share their historic home with us on a guided tour.

Vines and Wines

Sat 5 Mar 22

This morning we visit Pottique Lavender Farm where there are lots of things to see. From lavender product to jams, chutneys and gifts, we are sure to find something special. Next, we head to the first winery in the region, family-owned Crane Winery. The grand old colonial homestead and rustic cellar door is perched high on the Booie Range with breathtaking views. Here we enjoy a delightful wine tasting and a gourmet platter, showcasing homemade and local products. At Dusty Hill Wines there is so much to discover in the Winemaker’s Pantry. Offering products from local artisans and fresh produce from growers including hand poured soy candles, jams and relishes, cheeses and fudge made onsite. We finish the day at Moffatdale Ridge for a wine tasting. Passed through the family for generations, the wine and liqueurs here are made in a distinctive style to suit local Queensland growing and drinking conditions. Think fresh zesty whites and fruit driven liqueurs.
