Kingaroy, QLD

The Peanut Capital of Australia, Kingaroy lies on the D’Aguilar Highway, about 223km north-west of Brisbane. While peanuts are a major crop, and their distinctive silos are a feature of the landscape, they are far from being the only crop that claims a national title. About 75 per cent of Australia’s navy beans - most of which end up in cans of baked beans - are also grown locally.

The Bicentennial Heritage Museum is worth a visit, and there’s a great lookout at Mount Wooroolin, about 3km out of town. A few kilometres further on, the extraordinary Bunya Mountains rear up from the flats. The Bunya Mountain National Park embraces 11,700ha of rainforest, interwoven with fine walking tracks.
