250km west on the Burnett Highway from Bundaberg, celebrates the town’s
prosperity with a Dairy Festival in June of every even year.
Standout feature of the area is the Cania Gorge National Park which conserves
a spectacular landscape of sandstone cliffs soaring up to 70m in height, eucalypt
and dry rainforest. Wind and rain have carved unusual shapes in the sandstone
outcrops and some such as the distinctive Elephant's Head rock have been given
names. A network of bush walks beginning at the southern end of the picnic
area wanders through caves, pristine flora and unique Australian wildlife
Every March, the park hosts the Lake Cania freshwater fishing competition.
No camping is allowed within the park, but you can pitch your tent or tether
your van in a private park in the Cania Gorge, about 10km north of the entrance
to the National Park.
Sandstone cliffs 90m high dominate Cania Gorge. Monto agricultural show is in April.
