Escape the Rat Race - Stay at Taabinga
Several years ago I had an enjoyable weekend at this historic place just 18 kms from Kingaroy, and I recently returned to reminisce.
The homestead was built in 1846, and the property at that time covered some 305 square miles. Charles Robert Haly and his brother W. O'Grady Haley were the first white men to discover and explore the area now know as Taabinga, according to their brochure. It goes on to say that in 1859, Charles Haley became the sole owner of the property. In 1860 he became the first member of parliament for the district of Burnett (Gayndah).
