Nanango, QLD

Nanango is one of Queensland’s oldest towns and is proud of its unique heritage and colourful past, beautifully captured within the historic Ringsfield House. Although Nanango is the home of the Tarong Power Station and Coal Mine the town has retained the tranquil and beautiful setting of a country town with all businesses offering genuine country hospitality


Fossickers for gold still come to the Seven-Mile Diggings, an area that is also popular with Four Wheel Drive enthusiasts. Fossicking and recreational permits can be obtained from the Information Centre.

Tradition still lives on in the vibrant racing industry in Nanango with regular race meeting in a rural setting. In the shire the variety of bird life is unsurpassed. At the southern entrance to Nanango is Tipperary Flat – featuring pioneering displays and interpretive signs and walks. Take in the mural walk and chainsaw sculptures, which continue the pioneer theme.

Further to the west lies Maidenwell, gateway to the Bunya Mountains, where Coomba Falls is worth a visit and the walking trails a challenge.

Nanango is part of the South Burnett food and wine trail and is not only an area where culture and history meet but one that has an enviable lifestyle.
