With the majestic Bunya Mountains as its backdrop, the South Burnett provides a perfect blend of vibrant town and country living set amongst rich soil and rolling hills.
Located on the edge of the Great Dividing Range, it is an easy 2-hour drive north-west of Brisbane and directly west of the Sunshine Coast.
The South Burnett is underpinned by a history of agriculture and other entrepreneurial endeavours such as the wine industry and engineering manufacturing. The presence of the Tarong Power Stations and Meandu Mine (owned by Stanwell Corporation), Kingaroy Aerodrome, food processors, available industrial land, strong health and retail sectors all provide employment and assist to attract investment into the region.
The region hosts three major dams, the Bunya Mountains, vineyards and importantly the South Burnett towns are not susceptible to flooding. It is great for families with affordable housing, public and private hospitals and highly regarded schools, all major fast food chains and large grocery and retail stores such as Woolworths, IGA, Foodworks, Harvey Norman, Target, Big W and Aldi. It also has great sporting/ recreational clubs which enjoy strong membership.
